We provide military working dogs and service dogs with
a happy retirement through rehabilitation and retraining.
Hero Paws is a registered charity that supports all services that employ working dogs, from Military and Police to civilian sectors such as HMPS, Security, Conservation and Search roles.
We offer an unbiased process that aids all dogs to retire whether that be from failed training, unable to meet their current training standards or they have come to the end of their service. We offer to help bridge the gap from service to general population, to search for and rehome to the perfect home. We offer continued support and guidance to make sure these dogs live out the retirement they deserve.
Our ultimate goal is to set up a sanctuary/complex where ex working service dogs can be cared for and trained so they can eventually find their perfect forever home. We endeavour to match the right dog with the right home, no matter how long it takes
Many people are unaware that retired service dogs do not receive financial support in their retirement from the force they served with, meaning the responsibility for their care and vet bills fall solely to their ex-handler or new owner. Sometimes unable or at great expense to get pet insurance due to their working life, many are left with ongoing vet bills which can amount to thousands. Hero Paws provides much needed financial support to these unsung dog heroes and their owners to enable them to have a long and happy retirement.
Thank you for watching
