A Society for Retired Police Service Dogs

Ned’s Wish is a society committed to supporting law enforcement by providing financial and educational support to enhance the quality of life for K-9 retirees in Canada. After human police officers finish serving their communities, their pension funds support them. Due to the cost of health care for retired police dogs, the potential to enjoy retirement can quite literally rest on a dime. If health care costs become too high, a dog’s quality of life can be significantly reduced, or even cut-short.

Ned’s Wish: A Cause for Heroes with Paws

Because the work police dogs do is so physically demanding, families who adopt retired police dogs can be left with substantial and costly health issues.

Who Was Ned?

Like most RCMP police dogs, Ned was born at the Police Service Dog Training Centre (PDSTC) in Innisfail, Alta. on May 21, 2003. In June 2005, he was assigned to Cst. Garfield Henderson of the RCMP Valleyview Detachment in Alberta to be raised in the PDSTC imprinting program. In January 2006, Ned entered formal Police Dog Training and completed the course in just 20 working days and officially began working operationally at Comox Valley, B.C. After five years of dedicated service Ned retired to his forever home.
