MISSION STATEMENT

GIVING OUR K9 HEROES THE HOMECOMING THEY DESERVE

 

K9 Hero Haven is a non-profit 501(c)(3) volunteer organization.  K9 Hero Haven is dedicated to serving the military, veterans, and first responders by providing working dogs a home for retirement.  The K-9s employed with the military and first responders are the best at what they do. They are expected to work in the toughest environments and face the harshest conditions.  At any moment, they are expected to selflessly give their life to save ours.

K9 Hero Haven helps to transition dogs to retirement.  If at all possible, we want to re-unite a dog with its handler.  We give preference to provide veterans and law enforcement with retired working dogs in honor of their sacrifices.  We strive to educate the public on the roles that these dogs place in our world, to highlight the level of training which goes into to these dogs, and never to forget the dedication to their service in keeping us safe from danger. 


We are a non-profit that does not euthanize non-adoptable dogs.  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 work hard to find good homes for our dogs.  We also work to provide dignity and respect to the dogs who need some additional work to prepare them for their journey to retirement.
