ADESA Auctions raises $50,000 for Canine Companions

An ADESA Auctions at the NADA Show raised more than $50,000 for the NADA Foundation, which supports Canine Companions for Independence.


Jay Huston of Carpinteria, CA, who served in the U.S. Army for 20 years, and his dog Hurley, attended the auction to raise awareness of Canine Companions. Huston fractured his spine in two places during an airborne operation and suffers from chronic pain. Hurley is trained to open doors, turn the lights off and on and pick up dropped items.


ADESA Auctions have raised more than $384,000 over the past seven NADA Shows for the NADA Foundation’s Frank E. McCarthy Memorial Fund, in whose name the donation to Canine Companions is made. McCarthy served as NADA’s chief executive from 1968 to 2001.
