1952 Ford F3 to be auctioned off with proceeds going to Harley’s Haven Dog Rescue and the "Pups for Vet" cause.

CARLISLE, PA – Carlisle Auctions is no stranger to charitable causes, especially those that benefit military veterans. With the Fall Carlisle Collector Car Auction planned for September 30-October 1 at the Carlisle Expo Center, the Carlisle Auctions team has announced a partnership that ties its brand of automotive excitement to Harley’s Haven Dog Rescue and the Pups for Vets cause.

Harleys Haven

As part of the all-truck hour on September 30 in the 4 p.m. hour, proceeds from the sale of a 1952 Ford F3 truck will go directly to the group. Harley’s Haven Dog rescue is a non-profit 501(c)3 based in the Philadelphia area. They foster dogs of all breeds and ages. They also work directly with Jon Beagle and Laura Montai, founders of Pups for Vets.

It's this partnership, combined with a newly forged relationship with Carlisle Auctions, that’s fostered this consignment. Pups for Vets was founded in honor of Jon’s father and grandfather, both having served in the military. Not only did these men fight for our country and our freedoms, they loved dogs too. Jon viewed their love for animals combined with their veteran status as the perfect tie-in to work to match dogs with veterans. In doing so, Pups for Vets covers all fees associated with placement of pups with other veterans. The sponsor support occurs by way of Laura’s Hair Studio 1208 in Quakertown, PA. The studio also hosts adoption events and pet meet and greets throughout the year.

“My father served in Vietnam and my grandfather in World War II. They were my heroes. Their profound love for dogs was my inspiration to do what we’re doing, noted John. “Placing dogs in need of a forever home with a veteran who also has needs has worked out great so far,” continued John. “I am looking forward to the sale of this truck as part of the Fall Carlisle Auction. These dollars will go a long way in supporting Harley’s Haven Dog Rescue and our Pups for Vets cause.”

“Thank you to Harley’s Haven Dog Rescue, and to Pups for Vets for all that you do,” quipped Tony Cline, Director of Auction Operations. “We’re excited to share that all buyers and sellers fees associated with this 1952 Ford F3 will be waived and dollars earned will go to a great cause! Bid with your heart.”
