Charity Information

War Dog Ranch is a local non-profit organization created in 2013 for the purpose of helping veterans with physical and mental disabilities using nature and outdoor activities. We received our 501(c)3 in 2019 and before we could get off the ground COVID hit and shut everything down. It was until 2021 that we could finally get a footing and start our journey towards helping veterans. Some of the activities we have had the opportunity to do is whitetail hunting, turkey hunting, camping and catfishing. We plan to grow more and more every year with all the new and amazing relationships we have built.

Vet to Vet Vehicles is a charity dedicated to helping Veterans and First Responders in need by refurbishing vehicles and donating them. We provide the vehicle as a tool for transportation, pride, and a vessel to help others.
