When I took over ownership of SharpShooters in January, I made the decision to support two types of charities. First, we love and support our US Military Veterans. For Memorial Day, we worked closely with VetBuds, a local charity who donates 100% of their donations to help our Veterans. Second, we love and support our local law enforcement, and, specifically, our K9 Officers. For Labor Day 2021, we are going all in with Georgia Police K9 Foundation to support our local Police Working Dogs. Remember what we did Memorial Day? We’re planning a similar event for Labor Day, September 4-6.
K9 Jerry Lee
Our first goal is to bring awareness and funding to K9 Jerry Lee. Earlier this year, while pursuing a criminal, K9 Jerry Lee was shot in the front left leg. He survived, but the doctors could not save his leg. They amputated K9 Jerry Lee’s leg a few days after the incident. Due to the injury, he is now recovered, and living out a great retirement. Jerry Lee is also a fantastic K9 for community outreach.
All the money we raise over Labor Day weekend will go to Georgia Police K9 Fund to help with K9 Jerry Lee’s medical and retirement costs.
Fun & Games for the K9 Working Dogs
In order to raise that money for K9 Jerry Lee’s well-earned retirement, we’re going to have some fun! Here’s what’s in store (so far!).
- Everybody shoots FREE (no lane fees!) from Saturday at 11AM through Monday at 8PM
- All targets are $10 all weekend long
- All proceeds from the sales of $10 targets go 100% directly to GPK9F for K9 Jerry Lee
- Every purchase of a $10 target puts you in the mix for one of our DAILY giveaways (keep reading!)
- Everything (yes, including guns & ammo) in the store is 10% off the price shown all weekend
- Georgia Police K9 Foundation will be here all day Monday with K9 Jerry Lee and several other Police K9s
