Rob Zombie is donating the badass Counting Cars truck, as seen in July, to The Puppy Rescue Mission. The mission, helps dogs rescued by soldiers while on their tour of duty – animals that not only give the soldiers much needed bonds, but whom have also saved the soldiers. Says Rob: “… soldiers in Afghanistan would find these dogs and bond with them and sneak them on the bases, even though they weren’t supposed to have them. It was probably the only moment of sanity for these guys, when they spent time with them….But they weren’t allowed to take them home, and if they could, it was so expensive. That was a cause I could really understand and get behind.”
