About Hounds for Heroes
Our mission is to provide specially trained assistance dogs to injured and disabled men and women of both the HM Armed Forces and Emergency Services. We aim to provide help and practical support leading to an enhanced quality of life.
Hounds for Heroes assistance dogs can help overcome some of the physical barriers and obstacles caused by a disability; promoting an increased sense of freedom, providing a loyal comrade and just maybe the beginning of a new lease of life. We believe that everyone who fits our criteria, and requires the services of one of our trained dogs, should be able to experience the positive and life enhancing impact they will bring. The cost of the assistance dog’s food, equipment, insurance and veterinary costs are all met by Hounds for Heroes’ therefore you can safely apply knowing that in have one of our dogs, there will not be a negative impact on your existing income.
As of 2021, there are over 900,000 injured servicemen and women in the country and that number continues to grow on a daily basis. The unique mental attitude of service personnel means that only a handful so far have chosen to have an assistance dog provided by the civilian offerings, many will battle on in silence.
Hounds for Heroes receive no Government funding therefore the Charity’s reliance operates on the generosity of our supporters and remains critical in the challenging aftermath of the Pandemic.
