Hounds For Heroes

Hounds for Heroes' aim is to provide specially trained assistance dogs to injured and disabled men and women of both the UK armed forces and civilian emergency services.

Founded 2010

  • Mission statement

    Hounds for Heroes, assisted by serving members of the armed forces, and many other volunteers from all walks of life, is training assistance dogs who will be both help and companion to our clients, giving them increased independence and an enhanced quality of life.

    Allen Parton was inspired to set up Hounds for Heroes by his partnership with labrador Endal, who transformed Allen's life following a severe head injury received during the first Gulf War. Aware of the more than 900,000 ex-servicemen and women with disabilities, Allen started Hounds for Heroes to help those who could benefit, as he has done, from owning a dog like Endal.

    Allen says,
