About this Event


The third annual GRAND SLAM ADOPTION EVENT presented by Link AKC is hosted by Kate Upton and Justin Verlander, in partnership with the Detroit Tigers and Wins for Warriors, to benefit both SPCA Florida and K9s For Warriors. SPCA Florida is Polk County’s largest private non-profit animal welfare organization and exists to engage the entire community to eliminate animal suffering. This year alone they will find homes for more than 6,000 animals. K9s For Warriors is dedicated to providing service canines to warriors suffering from PTSD, Traumatic Brain Injury and military sexual trauma as a result of military service post-9/11. Over 95% of the service canines used are rescued from animal shelters. Founded by Justin Verlander, the mission of the Wins for Warriors Foundation is to empower United States military veterans and their families by strengthening collaboration and raising positive awareness in our communities. Wins for Warriors is headquartered in Detroit and is a 501(c)(3) charity.
