In early 2016, we received our first ex-demining dog called Murial, she is now 12 years old. This led us to open the worlds first retirement home for working dogs.

Home of heroes is the first retirement home in the world for de-mining dogs who have become too old to work in the field.

Our center will also take in the young dogs who don’t pass the very rigorous training.

These Belgian Malinoise dogs have given the greatest service to humanity and we believe that they deserve the very best we can give them in return.

The dogs are deployed to countries all around the world and have cleared thousands of acres of land sniffing out land mines, improvised explosive devices, and un-exploded ordinance like the awful cluster bombs that have remained buried for decades.

In the past, the dogs would be euthanized when they became too old to work the long and demanding hours out in the field. The younger dogs who didn’t pass the training would be given away and they would often meet a gruesome end. But not any more! Animal Mama and Home of Heroes have signed MOU’s with both the Norwegian People’s Aid (NPA) and Cambodian Mine Action Center (CMAC) to make sure every dog is saved.
