Donate a Vehicle
You can help animals by donating your used car, truck, van, motorcycle, or boat to Dakin! We work through an organization called CARS, to make this happen. It's a simple as filling out an online form and going from there. Dakin receives the proceeds of the auction of your vehicle, minus the service charges necessary to process the sale.
Here are some items you'll need to have ready to start the process:
- VIN Number (typically located on your title)
- Year of vehicle
- Title (Name, Titling State and ID Number)
- License Plate Number and Expiration Date
CARS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based out of San Diego, California. Founded in 2003 as a means to provide additional funding to the programs and services of Jewish Family Service, CARS soon began accepting vehicle donations to help other nonprofits raise extra revenue. What began as a company of just a few employees accepting around 3 vehicle donations per day, has grown into a well-respected leader in the car donation industry. Today, we are partnered with over 3,500 nonprofits with the vision of expanding our fundraising efforts so that we can continue to provide additional revenue to these amazing nonprofit organizations. CARS' success to date stems from our dedication to exceptional customer service, our ability to maximize each donation, and the extensive marketing content we create and distribute to our partners to help promote their programs.
