K9 Hero Haven is a non-profit 501(c)(3) made up by volunteer support, located in Herndon, PA.
Our mission is to provide retired working dogs a home for retirement.
We take in K9’s from U.S. Customs & Border Protection, K9’s from law enforcement agencies nationwide, as well as Contract Working Dogs (CWD’s), and Military Working Dogs (MWD’s).
We opened our kennel in August 2015, as of December 2019, we have placed 269 Heroes into homes & reunited 11 with their handlers.
If you are interested in being considered as a furever home for
our retired heroes, please click the adopt link to be taken to our
adoption application. Please complete all the application questions, so that we can evaluate each applicant for the right match. Please email back your completed application. If being a furever home is not possible, your financial support would be greatly appreciated.

CWD Blecky EDD to his handler, Jason in Texas
I attended the Military Working Dog Handler’s Course, as a Dept of Army Civilian Police Officer, at Lackland Airforce Base, San Antonio, Texas. I graduated MWD Handler’s Course in Jan 2010. I received the “TOP DOG” award for Block 1 and Block 2 when I graduated.
I was a MWD K9 Handler at Fort Hood Army Base, Ft Hood, TX until Oct 2012.
Mar 2013 I went to work for AMK9 as a K9 Handler, assigned to the Baghdad Embassy Security Forces (BESF), Baghdad, Iraq.
Explosive Detector Dog (EDD) Blecky was assigned to me in Aug 2014. EDD Blecky and I worked posts on the US Embassy and posts in the Green Zone in Baghdad. We were responsible for Explosive Detection of vehicles, buildings, and items coming into the Embassy Compound and the Green Zone. EDD Blecky was my K9 partner until Jun 2016.
CWD Blecky EDD is an 8 year old male Dutch Shepherd. He served in Iraq and Afghanistan.
