A local non-profit that trains dogs for law enforcement has beat out thousands of entries across the country for a chance to win a Toyota Highlander.
Like many other non-profits, K9 Specialty Services of Alabama receives most of their funding from private donations and their own volunteers. All of the trainers, including President Les Brown, use their own vehicles to haul the dogs and their equipment.
But thanks to Brown's wife, the organization has a chance to win a new ride. She discovered the Toyota 100 Cars for Good Contest. Out of 5,000 national entries, Mrs. Brown's made the cut for the final 500.
Each day five non-profits go head to head and whoever gains the most votes in the day gets a new car.
Even if K9 Speciality Services doesn't win, they say they've already gained invaluable publicity for the work they do.
