Trump gave the check to the Puppy Jake Foundation during a campaign rally in Davenport, Iowa, with Liberty University President Jerry Falwell, Jr. 

Three dogs and Puppy Jake representatives came onstage to receive the donation. 

“With $100,000, we will be able to raise five dogs,” a representative said. 

Trump raised funds for veterans when he skipped the Fox News GOP debate on Thursday, instead holding his own rally. 

Trump said he raised $6 million for veterans during the Thursday event. 

“That’s more important, frankly, than doing a debate,” Trump said in an interview with “Face the Nation” scheduled to air Sunday.
