Hounds for Heroes deserves our support

Here's a wonderful website I can thoroughly recommend to you today.

Hounds for Heroes is a registered charity which has been set up to provide specially-trained assistance dogs to injured and disabled men and women of both the UK armed forces and the civilian emergency services.

The charity has been founded by Allen Parton, who was seriously injured while serving with the Royal Navy in the Gulf War.

You may have heard about his life was transformed by an amazing assistance dog called Endal who was named Dog of the Millennium.

Sadly, Endal died in 2009 - but his good work is continued today by EJ (Endal Junior) who was the first dog to be trained under the auspices of Hounds for Heroes.

This is SUCH a great cause and there's lots of ways you can get involved and lend your support from donating on the website, buying merchandise - like their special dog tags - volunteering or organising a fund-raising event.

Please have a look today and see how these amazing dogs are making such a difference to the lives of our heroes.
