Paws Of Honor

Testimonials

It’s heart warming to know there are people that care enough to take care of a K9 that has done so much for their partner and our country
Dan Hudson (K9 in the program)

We can’t say enough good things about the Paws of Honor program. Since CJ and Hayley were retired from service, we have been taking them both to Paws of Honor program vet in McLean, VA. They have received outstanding care. CJ had chronic ear infections and went to several vets. The vet through the Paws of Honor program finally was able to get his ear infections under control. Since CJ is older, he also was starting to have hip issues and was having a hard time running, playing and jumping. The vet started acupuncture on CJ and we have seen a big difference. He is moving around much better now. The drive to McLean is long from where we live but it is worth it. Robert and Sandra Matia

I can’t say enough good things about Paws of Honor, they saved my dogs life and have improved the quality of life my 2 other retired k9s as well as countless others. No other charity does as much for the heroes that serve our country and our communities. He’s not just a retired police dog, he’s still giving to our community as a therapy dog and a READ dog, without POH he wouldn’t be here today!

I brought my retired Military Working Dog home after 9 years of Naval service. As with most Veterans, he has a plethora of health issues. However, unlike his human counterparts, he does not have any VA benefits or equivalent. Handlers that adopt their dogs are expected to handle these costs out of pocket. Paws of Honor has been a godsend. I know that no matter the ailment, my dog will get the required care. I no longer have to consider cost when determine the best treatment for him. I can’t begin to express how amazing this is. The staff take the time to get to know you and you dog.

For my birthday this year, I’m asking for donations to Paws Of Honor. I’ve chosen this nonprofit because their mission means a lot to me, and I hope you’ll consider contributing as a way to celebrate with me. Every little bit will help me reach my goal. 

For those who know, Paws of Honor performed life saving surgery and daily care to Matt’s retired working dog, Bak. He passed away in March 2017 but lived the best life he could, all thanks to Paws of Honor. Everything they do, comes from donations. Please consider donating to help those military and police dogs in the Northern Virginia area.

There are not enough positive things that I can say about Paws of Honor. This non profit gave me hope and removed a literal weight from my shoulders. Many may not understand when police canines retire from service their veterinary care becomes the responsibility of the handler. Attached are photos of my pretty girl Senna, she is a retired explosive detection canine. She was retired just before her fourth birthday, which is quiet early for any working dog. As you can see she had cancer and we had to amputate her left front leg, but please know she is a happy and healthy 6 year old now and that is thanks to Paws of Honor!! When we go into the clinic we are welcomed and senna feels so loved. They downright spoil us! Please consider donating to such a special organization who looks out for those four (or three) legged heroes that served our county.
