What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Welcome to Pawsome Pensions . We are a brand new independent and unregistered charity that is being set up to help support our retired Police and Fire dogs from Devon, Dorset & Cornwall Police Service and Fire & Rescue Service. We are new so cannot obtain a registered charity status until we have an annual income of at least £5,000. It would be great if you could help get us there and ensure we offer the best support possible to our dogs.

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 to help with equipment, food and veterinary maintenance, 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 healthcare possible, ensuring they have an excellent quality of life in their retirement years. It is the least we can do for the years they've spent working for us.

We are a "not for profit" charity and all monies raised will be used to help pay towards vet bills for our retired dogs. 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 a dog retires 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 medical care of a retired Police/Fire dog is possible but it can be very difficult. Due to their job 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.

So we want to help our four legged legends. Now they have retired and given up their licence to work, we want to give them a “Licence to Chill".
