JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jack Jennings, 68, served during the Vietnam War and has a heart for veterans returning from the front lines overseas.
He's the founder of the non-profit K9 Pets 4 Deserving Vets.
"That's what I'm doing here, helping vets for free, that's what this organization is set up to do," said Jennings.
He said he found the ideal property in Middleburg and paid $60,000 at a public auction at the Clay County Courthouse.
"They had 300 homes that day," he said. "I had been watching this home because I wanted to turn it into a dog retreat."
