We are a 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.
Please consider one of the sponsorships listed. We also appreciate your donation to K9 Hero Haven, if you are looking for a 501(c)(3) non-profit rescue for an end of the year donation.
Thank you for all your love, help, and support. We couldn't do what we do without each and every one of you!! From the bottom of my heart... I thank you!!
