“CWD Goby EDD retired in July of 2016 and came to K9 Hero Haven. She was adopted to Jack and Michele in PA on 10/23/16.
She passed away suddenly at home. She was playing earlier this AM and acting her normal self. Her passing was quick and unexpected.
Thank you Jack and Michele for giving her a wonderful and beautiful retirement. I know she was very loved and will be greatly missed.” – Anne Gibbs (K9 Hero Haven)

“K9 Hero Haven is a 100% 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 most toughest of environments and face the harshest of conditions. At any moment, they are expected to selfishly give their live 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, and to highlight the level of training which goes into to these dogs never to forget the dedication to their service in keeping us safe from danger.
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.”
