BARK and Military Makeover with Montez Team Up to Spoil Rescue Dog of Military Veteran

BARK, a leading global omnichannel dog brand has announced its partnership and featured role in the latest episode of Military Makeover with Montel®. In this heartwarming collaboration, BARK transformed the home of military veteran Matthew Kruspe and his family, creating a specially designed area for their cherished rescue pit bull, Ava. BARK designed Ava’s space from a dog’s-eye-view, complete with toys, delicious treats and toppers, an outdoor dog bed and a year subscription to BarkBox, BARK’s monthly themed box of toys and treats.

Kruspe, a medically retired USMC disabled veteran and Purple Heart recipient, resides in Florida with his wife, Letoria, a breast cancer survivor, along with their 15-year-old teenage twins and their beloved dog, Ava.

BARK’s CEO and Co-Founder Matt Meeker was on-site to meet the Kruspe family and ensure Ava’s space passed the sniff test.

“We were excited to work with Military Makeover to pull out all the stops for Ava and the Kruspe family,” said Meeker. “As a Navy veteran myself, I understand how deep a bond is between a vet and his dog and this meant a lot to me. At BARK, we celebrate the unique personalities and quirks of each and every dog, and we’re honored to be able to spoil Ava and make a much deserving dog happy.”

The Kruspe family’s story is featured in the 38th season of Military Makeover with Montel®, which premiered on Lifetime Television® on May 24. Stay tuned to Lifetime for the first peek at BARK’s contribution, which airs on June 14 at 7:30 AM ET/PT and June 20 at 7:30 AM ET/PT on Lifetime® Television.
