Harding Steinbrenner Racing announced on Thursday that they have entered into a new partnership with non profit Dogs2DogTags starting with this weekend’s Honda Indy 200 at the Mid Ohio sportscar course.
Dogs2DogTags pair shelter dogs with military veterans which provide companionship and therapy to veterans who have returned from active service.
Speaking about the new partnership, team co-owner Mike Harding said:
“The motorsport community has always been extremely supportive of Veterans. “After our team met D2DT at Road America, we immediately decided that this partnership was perfect for our team and a great opportunity to connect with Veterans and give dogs a second chance for a great cause.”
Founder of D2DT Torre Willadsen commented on the announced saying:
t’s inevitable that a soldier’s battle isn’t over when they come home. “Dog2DogTags is a dedicated service, at no cost, that trains shelter dogs so that they can assist in a Veteran’s therapy and provide companionship throughout their everyday life.”
Harding Steinbrenner Racing team co owner George Steinbrenner IV commented on the new partnership saying:
“We are thrilled to partner with organizations like Dog2DogTags. “They are truly making a difference in so many lives and having this opportunity to be involved with an organization like this makes us all humbled and eager to help them spread their message.
