Express your gratitude and appreciation for the sacrifice our brave men and women in uniform make each day as they and their K9 partners work to keep us save and ensure our freedoms. It seems all too often lately that those who have sworn to protect and serve are being targeted and attacked. We’re here to say that the actions of a few do not represent the majority. Our police and military officers deserve to hear our appreciation and so, in the fall of 2019, our Community Thank You Card Program was born. Across the Nation individuals & families have taken the time to return one of our thank you cards..

Paws of Honor sends greeting cards to people across America (free of charge) to sign and return as a show of gratitude for those who serve this great nation. These cards are then delivered to the handlers/owners/families of retired police and military K9s, law enforcement agencies with active K9 programs and military installations with K9 programs. Your kindness and generosity and personal words of encouragement go a long way in showing your support. We have received over 40,000 cards!

For additional cards you can hand out to friends and family to sign and return to Paws of Honor please contact us and we’ll more than happy to send you some.

Some of the signed cards are show here along with a few handwritten notes that have accompanies them.
