GOETTL PARTNERS WITH K9S FOR WARRIORS, SPONSORS SERVICE DOG FOR VETERANS
Leading HVAC and Plumbing Services Provider Partners with Nationally Recognized Nonprofit to Provide Trained Service Dogs to Military Veterans
LAS VEGAS, Nev., November 10, 2023 — Goettl, a renowned leader in the HVAC and plumbing industry, proudly announces its partnership with K9s For Warriors, the nation’s largest provider of trained service dogs for veterans. As part of this partnership, Goettl will sponsor the training of one service dog for a military veteran suffering from invisible wounds of war, underlining its steadfast commitment to supporting the military and veterans.
Goettl employs nearly 100 veterans across its 10 locations and recognizes the unique qualities these veterans bring to the organization. Their unwavering dedication, discipline, and leadership have been instrumental in Goettl’s continued success, allowing the company to continually provide exceptional services to its customers.
K9s For Warriors is a nationally recognized nonprofit organization that is deeply committed to ending veteran suicide. To fulfill its mission, the organization provides highly trained service dogs to military veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury, and military sexual trauma. Most of the dogs in the K9s For Warriors program are rescues, and through this innovative program, the K9/Warrior teams build an unbreakable bond, fostering collective healing and recovery.
Goettl’s donation to K9s For Warriors provides:
● Six to eight months of comprehensive service dog training, including public access training to ensure the dog is equipped to go anywhere with the veteran
● Shelter and continued care for the service dog during its training
● Essential service dog accessories, including vests, leashes, and other training materials
● Vital veterinary care for the service dogs
The company is excited to kick off this partnership on Veterans Day. As part of the celebration, Goettl is inviting its community to help name the sponsored service dog on the company’s Instagram page https://www.instagram.com/goettlair/.
“Our partnership with K9s For Warriors is a reflection of our enduring commitment to supporting veterans and making a meaningful impact,” said Jake Gress, CEO of Goettl. “Incorporating our deep affection for dogs, exemplified by Sadie, our very own mascot dog, who certifies our associates, this partnership with K9s For Warriors is a natural and heartfelt collaboration.”
Goettl and K9s For Warriors are united in their belief that the steadfast support of service dogs can make a significant difference in the lives of our nation’s heroes, helping them regain their independence and improve their quality of life.
