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 also provide non-adoptable dogs with limited opportunities, a place to retire.

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 2022, we have placed 360 Heroes into homes & reunited 17 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.


From Anne: I received the following letter from Dennis Blocker, the author of “Dogs of 2 Wars”

Hello Anne,

As I mentioned to you on the phone, we here at "Dogs Of 2 Wars" would like to donate to your K9 Hero Haven Rescue Organization $1.00 from every book we sell of the book my son and I wrote titled, "The Dogs I've Known In 2 Wars." Which as you know, the book was written to bring Honor and Glory to those CWD I worked with in Iraq and in the remote mountains of Afghanistan.

I was responsible for the supervision and training for 38 of these CWDs between these two war-torn countries. They were awesome War Dogs! My book tells of their individual bravery, fear, and fun times while in War.

I've trained many Police and War Dogs over the years and am thrilled to know we can donate funds to help you with your needs for them, in giving them great and happy lives.

We will send you a check once a month, the funds will vary, it depends on how well sales are going of the book, it varies from day-to-day.

Dennis Blocker

Author & Founder of "Dogs Of 2 Wars"


We are excited to be working with TWC Construction, Livic Civil Engineering, and Jeff Georg with ASCOM Electric for our new kennel building that will be built on our property here. We will share updates and new plans as this project develops.

The new home will have 32 climate controlled, in and out kennel runs, an elevated dog bath, a food storage room and many more extras.

We are a nonprofit rescue that does not euthanize non-adoptable dogs. We have taken in many police K9s that were at risk for being euthanized due to different levels of aggression. We want to be able to provide retired working dogs that have limited opportunities, a place to retire, in addition to continuing our mission of adopting dogs that can be placed into retirement homes.  We are at a point where we need to expand and build a newer, bigger, and better set-up for them. I want the retired working dogs that can't live in a home, to have the closest thing to a home that they can. These dogs can be more difficult to handle, and not adopted easily, but they have worked their entire lives protecting us and doing what they are trained to do.  I have never had to say "No" to a retired K9 needing help. We want to continue to help them have the retirement they so much deserve.  We currently have 54 dogs in our care. We have adopted 339 retired working dogs into retirement homes since we started our rescue in 2015.

​RaeAnn introduced us all to ONEHOPE Wine when she hosted a party a bit ago. An amazing thing about ONEHOPE Wine is that even after the official party ends, the fundraising continues! You can go on the shopping link years later, buy wine, & support our Heroes at K-9 Hero Haven! Every purchase gives back 10%. This introductory link below will be open until May 29th, but all the information will be permanently available on the "Donations" tab.
