‘We’ve caught the baddies, we’ve had great fun
Help fund our retirement, our duty is done’
Welcome to PawsomePensions . We are a registered charity that has been set up to help support our retired Police Dogs from Devon, Dorset and Cornwall Police services and Fire dogs from Devon, Dorset, Somerset and Cornwall Fire and Rescue Services.
We are incredibly fortunate that our Police dogs receive a one off payment from the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner when they retire, but as you can imagine this doesn’t last long. So it is our intention to enhance this generous donation and raise money to ensure our dogs receive the best Veterinary care possible, ensuring they have an excellent quality of life in their retirement years by helping towards their veterinary care/treatment. The least we can do for the years spent working for us.
A working Police or Fire dog can serve many years, providing an invaluable service to the communities they work in and the officers they work with. When the dogs retire the handler or the new adopter take on the full responsibility for that dog and all the financial commitments of caring for a retired working dog. Most dogs will retire at the end of their service, however some retire early due to illness or injury. Seeking insurance for veterinary care of a retired Police/Fire dog is possible but it can be very difficult. Due to their jobs and their age at retirement it comes at a premium price. This insurance will also not cover any pre-existing injuries/illnesses that may have been sustained through the dogs working life.
Pawsome Pensions attend various events over the year in the Southwest fundraising and promoting Animal welfare. We do this by engaging and informing the public of the work we are doing to provide assistance to the Police and Fire dogs. We also inform the public of the working life of a Police or Fire dog, by engaging with them and explaining the role played by the dogs. At some events we also provide a Police dog display.
So we want to help our four legged legends. Now they have retired and lost their license to work, we want to give them a
“Licence to Chill!”
