When you visit the JDog Junk Removal & Hauling website, you’re greeted with the slogan “WE SERVED OUR COUNTRY, NOW WE SERVICE OUR COMMUNITY.” For veteran U.S. Marine Jason “JDubbs” Pratt, the saying couldn’t be more true. Located in Mount Pleasant and servicing Racine County and beyond, they specialize in junk removal and hauling services. “We are Veteran owned and operated and also try to donate, re-purpose and recycle as much as we can before properly disposing of unusable items,” Pratt says. The company will haul out single items or entire homes and quote per job. They are very cost competitive and budget-friendly. Many times, they partner with funeral homes after a loved one has passed, removing a heavy burden from families in cleaning out belongings. Many times, they’re able to donate larger items to veterans in need as well as local organizations. His company is another great example of “see a need, fill a need.” They saw a chance to care for and provide jobs to veterans while helping others in need at a cost the community could afford. I asked: “What can your clients/customers expect when they come to your business?” Pratt replied: “We work with every valued customer to provide services that ensure respect, trust and integrity.” JDog Racine is doing a food drive next month at the local Pick’n Save locations and all donations will go to the Shalom Center and Racine County Food Bank.
