JDog Franchisees: This is your chance to fight "fake news" at its most destructive.

Even a modest donation will help stop the feeling that your silence makes you somehow complicit in the deception of your Veteran brothers & sisters.

It's an opportunity for those who contributed to or stayed silent, for years, about a false success story that devastated countless Veterans & military families to NOW contribute to sharing the TRUE RISKS of owning a JDog Junk Removal or Carpet Cleaning franchise with trusting Veterans seeking the American Dream.

From 2015 to the present, the false portrayal of the JDog Junk Removal franchise opportunity as a safe path to successful business ownership for active service members, military veterans & military families seemed (&seems) to be everywhere.

Google "Jerry Flanagan JDog" & you'll be overwhelmed with compelling stories, videos and ads about his mission to empower transitioning Veterans through business ownership. You'll be inspired by his supposed mission to reduce Veteran unemployment & battle PTSD, depression & Veteran suicide.

In the absence of JDog franchisees voicing their honest experiences and opinions, JDog Brands' continues to hide the truth, deceive Veterans and their families, and lock them into one-sided, 15-year contracts that have resulted in early termination of 300 veteran-owned franchises, bullying lawsuits and loss of their freedom of speech & expression.

JDog franchisees: "The JDog Report: An Urgent Call to End the Exploitation of Veterans in Franchising" is not a mean-spirited attack on a brand that "puts food on your family's table." It states and highlights the FACTS presented in company disclosure documents and certified true, under penalty of law, by JDog CEO Jerry Flanagan. It does what you could not do: inform your fellow Veterans of the facts behind the hype that would have helped you make a more informed investment decision when YOU were the one attending Discovery Day.

Help us stop the exploitation of U.S. veterans & military families with a comprehensive, factual report submitted to Congress, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), The Small Business Administration (SBA), The Veteran's Administration (VA), the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), military veterans and the general public.

Together, we can protect those who protected us.
