Hounds for Heroes

Hounds for Heroes provides assistance dogs for injured or disabled men and women who have served in the armed forces or emergency services.

We committed to an ongoing partnership with the charity in Quarter 2 of 2019, by donating £20,000 over a period of four years.
Managing Director, David Honcoop, met with founder and Chair, Allen Parton, who was himself seriously injured whilst serving in the Royal Navy.

Allen created Hounds for Heroes so that injured personnel from the military and the ‘blue-light’ services might receive the same help that his service dog, Endal, had given him. In his words “We owe them a great debt, and this is our way of saying thank you”.

Hounds for Heroes recruit between 8 and 12 puppies per year. They refer to each intake of puppies as a squadron and they recruit two squadrons consisting of at least four puppies of similar ages. Hounds for Heroes uniquely fully funds the whole life of the hounds. In this way, the provision of an Assistance Dog ensures the availability of the help offered as wide as possible. From the 24 months it usually takes to fully train, the residential training course and support through the partnership, the charity provides a lifeline to service men and women.

David Honcoop said:

“With our two resident Labradors, the Clarity team fully understands the joys a dog can bring, but to be able to offer dogs that can also facilitate independence to a service man or woman, it is a pleasure to know that our donation could help.

I look forward to seeing the progress made with each of the puppies in the squadron we are sponsoring, which we hope will have the same transformative impact on someone’s life as it did for Allen. By supporting Hounds for Heroes we hope to use the success of our business to change one person’s life for the better.”</em
