“CWD Kety was adopted to John and Faye in PA on 8/2/15 after retiring from Afghanistan. She retired at 10.6 years of age and returned stateside after aging out.
CWD Kety was an amazing dog and had a wonderful, spoiled retirement where she was part of a great family. She was loved dearly.
CWD Kety was a huge support for Faye while she went through treatment for cancer. CWD Kety never left her side and you would most likely find her there.
They are deeply saddened and devastated by her loss. She was dearly loved and will be greatly missed.
Thank you for your service CWD Kety. You were a true hero. You will never be forgotten. Rest easy my sweet girl, you have earned your wings.” – K9 Hero Haven, 29 July 2019

“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.”
