Do Over Dogs Wins Applewood Plumbing Caring Community Giveaway
Applewood Plumbing Heating & Electric has announced Do Over Dogs as their Spring Caring Community Giveaway winner. The local nonprofit organization will receive $5000 from Applewood to further help the loving dogs that come through their doors.
“We are honored and proud to be able to present this donation to a terrific nonprofit organization,” said Josh Ward, owner of Applewood Plumbing Heating & Electric. “Our employees are encountering clients’ pets during repair calls all the time, so it means a lot for us to be able to give back to our community and have dogs be a part of it too.”
Applewood was inspired by their upcoming Furry Scurry event and their regular on-the-job interactions with these furry friends to choose organizations focused on creating better lives for “man’s best friend.” Applewood employees submit nominations for the Giveaway program.
This quarter’s Giveaway was a close competition with a record-breaking number of votes deciding which dog-loving nonprofit would get the grand prize of $5000. Applewood’s employees chose three organizations that would be a part of this quarter’s dog-focused giveaway. Freedom Service Dogs and Ho-Bo Care Boxer Rescue were the other two nonprofits nominated along with Do Over Dogs. Both organizations will each receive a $500 donation from Applewood.
Do Over Dogs specializes in giving at-risk dogs a second chance at life. The foster-based nonprofit focuses on rescuing and rehabilitating dogs that are at high risk of euthanasia and then providing a home for those loving animals. They are then able to be adopted from their foster homes and truly be given another chance at life with a new forever-home and family. The organization has announced that the donation will go toward a second surgery for their Doberman puppy amputee, Maverick.
In its 50th year of business, Applewood Plumbing Heating & Electric has donated more than $240,000 to Denver-metro area nonprofits through their Caring Community Giveaway in the past 17 years. The program has helped numerous small, local nonprofits have a greater impact across the Front Range of Colorado.
