St. Louis Radio: WIL-FM's 'One Pet, One Vet' Initiative Raises $31K+

New Country WIL 92.3 FM Afternoon Drive team Stacey and Jonah are proud to announce that last week’s “One Pet, One Vet” fundraising initiative was an exceptionally successful campaign.

Stacey and Jonah set the goal of raising $20,000 for “Got Your Six” to purchase a service dog for a LOCAL vet suffering from PTSD. “Got Your Six” Support Dogs helps veterans and first-responders who have risked their lives serving our country, and was developed out of the need of veterans and first-responders requesting PTSD service dogs, when all other methods of treatment have failed. The organization’s mission is to help our men and women regain their lives through the healing power of dogs.

Stacey and Jonah blew past the initial goal of raising $20,000 – ultimately, the St. Louis station sponsors and listeners raised $31,250 to purchase a service dog for a LOCAL vet suffering with PTSD, through “Got Your Six” Support Dogs in Collinsville, Illinois.

“We were blown away by the support we received from our station’s listeners and New Country 92.3 Home Team, in order to support our veterans after they return from service to our country”, according to Stacey and Jonah.

  1. Got Your Six Support Dogs is a great organization helping our veterans. Awesome that New Country 92.3 is helping them raise money. More radio stations should do the same.
