They weigh around four to five pounds each.

The vests are being donated by the nonprofit organization Vested Interest in K9s.

Since starting in 2009, Vested Interest has given out more than 2,700 protective vests across 50 states.

Rocky and Cezar should get their new gear in the next eight to ten weeks.
