Police and Fire dogs are an extremely valuable resource for the police and fire service and the communities they serve. They are used in a multitude of situations which include:
Police and Fire dogs live with their handlers at their homes and the bond between them is very special. Our dogs mean a lot to us and when the time comes for retirement it is always a very difficult time for both dog and handler.
Police and Fire dogs spend their lives serving their communities, and we believe that they have earned the right to put their paws up and enjoy a happy retirement!
Whilst a lot of dog owners will take out insurance for their pooches to cover expensive vet’s bills, this is not something that can be done for police nad fire dogs because of their age and also the job they have previously done.
For example, did you know that arthritis can cost up to £1200 per year to treat, or that removal of a lump can cost nearly £400, and that is without any medication.
With your help, we can in turn help their new owners to provide a long, healthy and happy retirement for these wonderful animals.
We are currently supporting 50 retired Police and Fire Dogs.
Our mission is to support these courageous dogs who have worked long hours protecting both the public and their handlers and we ask that the communities they have worked hard to protect now repay their loyal service by supporting the Pensions4paws charity.
Pensions4paws is a registered charity in England and Wales No: 1161107
