MBTA K-9 Vest Student Fundraiser, August 18, 2010 MBTA Transit Police K-9 partner Marco is now outfitted with a safety vest, thanks to the kindness and perseverance of 13-year old Madeleine Barowsky of Framingham.  Barowsky today received a Certificate of Appreciation from Transit Police Chief Paul MacMillan for her efforts.

Madeleine and her mother met Officer Sean McCarthy and K-9 Marco in May, and the Framingham 8th grade student worked for months raising money.  Barowsky made dog-shaped fridge magnets, doggie earrings made of clay, and homemade dog biscuits, and placed collection jars at pet stores.  She worked through K9 Vested Interest, a non-profit organization.

Her months of efforts and kindness paid off, raising the $750 needed to donate a bullet proof vest to K-9 Marco. 

Chief MacMillan said, "Madeleine's selfless act of kindness will help protect K-9 Marco as he performs his duties."
