The Daily Mail has recently highlighted the growing numbers of retiring Police and Military dogs put to sleep at the end of their working lives.
Bravo Working Dog Rescue, run the only specialist working dog rehabilitation and retraining rescue in the UK. They have had many successful cases over many years but the increasing numbers of failed and retiring working dogs that are not staying with handlers needed its own rescue. Bravo was created to offer this on a bigger scale.
They are currently fundraising to find enough money to set up one main base with kennels. Their motto is “sometimes, even a hero needs help”. These dogs find our lost children, catch our burglars and keep our workplaces safe and protect us from drugs and explosives. They really deserve help.
Bravo Working Dog Rescue is the only rescue offering rehabilitation and retraining to failed and retiring working dogs. Whilst some dogs do get to retire with their handlers, everyone will have seen recent news reports about the amount of dogs put to sleep at the end of their career or sold on badly. We fight many in the industry to take dogs, often helped secretly by handlers who want to save their dog.
Sadly Bravo Rescue are now turning dogs away as their original kennels are being turned into something else. Therefore they desperately need to raise £5,000 to enable them to move and set up a kennel base in the Midlands.
Anything you can do to help is much appreciated, for without this wonderful organisation, many of these dogs could be dead or worse.
