K9s For Warriors
K9s For Warriors is Los Gatos Auto Service's chosen charity of 2016!
This year, for every closed Service Invoice that we perform on your vehicle in amount of $100.00 or more, Los Gatos Auto Service, Inc. is proud to announce that we will donate $10.00 to www.K9SFORWARRIORS.org Charity which helps American Veterans returning from war. And we're not stopping there! We will make it easy for you too to contribute further by collecting any further donations YOU may choose to provided personally...and Dave Hernandez will then personally see to it that your contribution goes directly to the charity; thus facilitating an easy, simpler way for you to contribute to this great cause without spending time signing up for the site. Facilitating hassle free donations is our goal!
If you're interested in donating to K9SFORWARRIORS.org, please give us a call for more information, or simply stop by our shop and say hi!
As a nation, its heartbreaking to see that we are losing one veteran every hour to suicide...and we here at Team LGAS find that statistic absolutely unacceptable.That is why we want to do our part in contributing to this great cause of hope for a better future for our heroic Men and Women who serve in our Armed Forces.
K9s For Warriors' unique program has had a 100% success rate in helping to reduce this epidemic that sadly exists amongst the veteran population who many come home suffering from PTSD or Traumatic Brain Injury - or TBI...the largely invisible killers. Far too many of our brave warriors come to K9S For Warriors at rock bottom: living life angry, embittered, afraid....and far too often with thoughts of giving up the fight to go on living once back home...after fighting so valiantly for our Nation on Battlefields halfway around the world. But K9S helps to lift them back up, raise their spirits and begin a new life and a fresh start. We truly admire K9SFORWARRIORS for all their highly commendable contributions and efforts to help improve the lives of others.
K9s For Warriors has not lost a single program graduate to suicide, and they are determined, with the help of supporters like you..and us..to continue with this tremendous rate of success!

A traffic cop pulled alongside a speeding car on the motorway. Glancing into the car, he was astounded to see that the young lady, who was driving, was knitting.
Realizing that she was oblivious to his flashing lights and siren, the policeman wound down his window, turned on his loudspeaker and yelled, 'PULL OVER!'
'NO', the young lady yelled back, 'IT's A SCARF!'
