Jeff Martin Auctioneers is pleased to announce the selection of K9 For Warriors as the primary corporate charity for 2022. The goal is to raise $100,000, which will provide four service dogs to veterans.
Jeff Martin Auctioneers practices the philosophy of when you learn, you teach, and when you get, you give. 2021 was a year of tremendous growth for the company with the acquisitions of Fahey Sales and Ryan Auctions and the creation of a strategic partnership with Freije Auctioneers. K9 For Warriors is a charity near and dear to Jeff and Kellie Martin. Both have always loved animals and have deep respect for our veterans. Knowing service dogs that will help facilitate healing and recovery of veterans willing to give up everything was a key decision factor in this selection. “To be able to provide a highly trained service animal who is also a companion to our veterans is important to us as a family and a company,” said Jeff Martin, CEO and president. “Our soldiers and veterans are willing to risk everything so we can have freedom. K9 For Warriors allows us, the people, a way to give back to our veterans.”
Determined to end veteran suicide, K9s For Warriors provides highly-trained Service Dogs to military veterans suffering from PTSD, traumatic brain injury and/or military sexual trauma. With the majority of dogs coming from high-kill rescue shelters, this innovative program allows the K9/Warrior team to build an unwavering bond that facilitates their collective healing and recovery.
