Jacobsen CPO program 
partners with service dog charity

By |  February 13, 2015 0 Comments

The Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) program at Jacobsen, a Textron company, has partnered with Patriot PAWS, a nonprofit organization that provides disabled American veterans with service dogs at no cost.

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 CPO equipment it sells.

“Our mobility-impaired veterans have a great need for assistance dogs,” Stevens says. “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.”

Lori Stevens, along with her five-year-old demo dog Jazz, will be featured in Jacobsen’s CPO booth — No. 13045 — at the Golf Industry Show, held Feb. 21-26 in San Antonio. When Jazz was 19 months old she rode in the Rose Bowl parade with disabled veterans and has served as Patriot PAWS’ demo dog ever since. Show attendees are encouraged to stop by and learn more about Patriot PAWS and Jacobsen’s CPO program.

“Patriot PAWS is helping to make a real difference in the lives of our country’s returning war heroes,” says Brad Adamson, vice president of customer care for Jacobsen . “We are very proud to be part of Patriot PAWS and look forward to helping increase awareness of this great charity.”
