Vehicle Donations

Donate Your Vehicle!

Turn your used vehicle, truck, RV, boat, or trailer into veterinary care for pets! Thanks to our partnership with Speed’s Towing, your used vehicle becomes a tax-deductible donation to DoveLewis, benefitting thousands of animals – it could even save a life.

How do I donate my vehicle to DoveLewis?

Contact Speed’s Towing, DoveLewis’ vehicle donation partner. They will arrange the pickup or drop off of the vehicle. 


Frequently Asked Questions

Does my car have to be running to qualify for donation?

No, but the car must have an engine and be towable. If the car doesn’t run, call Speed’s Towing and they can arrange to tow the vehicle to their auction site.

What paperwork do I need?

Be sure to have your title with you, but do not sign or date it until instructed by staff from Speed’s Towing.

Do I get a receipt for my donation?

Yes. An acknowledgement letter from DoveLewis will be mailed to you within 60 days of the sale. The amount of gross proceeds received from your vehicle will be listed on this receipt. This will be your receipt for your charitable contribution.

What can I claim as a deduction?

Due to recent IRS updates to the rules regarding vehicle donations and the amount of the deduction that can be claimed, we recommend that you refer to IRS Publication 4303 "A Donor's Guide to Vehicle Donations," which can be found at www.irs.gov, or contact your tax advisor to determine the amount of your tax deduction.

What does DoveLewis do with the donated vehicles?

The vehicles are sold at auction. The funds from vehicle donations are used to support our veterinary medicine and programs benefiting the animal-loving community.

Do I have to be with the vehicle at the time of pick-up?

No. Special arrangements can be made when you talk with the tow company.

How much money will DoveLewis receive?

It varies. However, after towing and administrative costs, DoveLewis will receive the remainder of the proceeds from the sale of the car.
