Started by professional dog trainer Lori Stevens in 2006, Patriot PAWS dogs are taught behaviors to assist the mobility impaired. They can pick up dropped items, provide bracing to get up and down, help with household chores, and get help in an emergency.
In addition to making an initial contribution to Patriot PAWS, Jacobsen is donating funds for every piece of Certified-Pre Owned (CPO) equipment it sells.
“Our mobility-impaired veterans have a great need for assistance dogs,” said Stevens. “Jacobsen’s donations will help us make more connections between our dogs and veterans around the country. This partnership will also create more awareness of what we do and the many veterans who need our help.”
“Patriot PAWS is helping to make a real difference in the lives of our country’s returning war heroes,” said Brad Adamson, VP of Customer Care for Jacobsen and champion of the company’s CPO program. “We are very proud to be part of Patriot PAWS and look forward to helping increase awareness of this great charity.”
