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

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.
