Vehicle donations and K-9 Officers.


Some of the vehicles that are donated are sold at auctions, some are used for parts, and some are used to help train K-9 units?!

You always hear about vehicle donations or donating your car to charity, but sometimes we just have to share some really amazing stories that we come across. One of our auto recyclers help out by allowing their state and local police department to train the K-9 units with the vehicles. The K-9 officers train by placing drugs or paraphernalia in a vehicle and having the K-9 dogs sniff them out. This allows for them to be more accurate and faster at what they do. Which in turn, helps the community by keeping these types of things off of the street.

It is always nice to know that your car donation is helping. Whether it is helping the ASPCA take in an animal in need, the North Shore Animal League save an animal, or even if it is your favorite radio station that you want to help. Your donation helps! You are helping raise funding for your favorite charity so they are able to continue doing what they set out to do.
