PLEASE NOTE: THE MURPHY’S ARMY PURPLE POPPY CAMPAIGN IS IN NO WAY CONNECTED TO OR AFFILIATED WITH THE RBL OR IT’S POPPY APPEAL
It will support the owners of retired dogs and horses by helping with veterinary bills and ongoing care, whether they be the handlers who have decided to keep their work partners, or the families who have adopted a retired service animal.
The NFRSA will also help the existing local charities who have already been working incredibly hard to provide this vital support, by promoting their work and sign-posting those who need help, or would like to offer help, to the established organisations if applicable to their location.
Retired service animals are no longer afforded financial help once they have put their paws or hooves up, and so it is up to us to ensure their retirement is one of comfort and safety – this includes their ongoing health and happiness.
For years they have protected us, the public, from danger – whether it be criminal activities, crowd control using horses, fire detection dogs, or prison dogs. It is now our turn to protect our protectors.
Little did he know, when stolen in 2014, what an incredible impact the now famous Murphy would have. He brought together a team of people who, despite Murphy’s safe return, pledged to help other owners whose pets were missing. Awarded charity status in 2016, our mssiion is to help reunite pets with their owners, raise pet theft awareness and promote pet safety, welfare and care.
We are proud to have awarded over £40,000 worth of grants to assist rescues with the daily needs of animals in their care or to cover emergency veterinary bills. Your support means that our invaluable contribution can continue.

Hero Paws is a registered charity that supports all services that employ working dogs, from Military and Police to civilian sectors such as HMPS, Security, Conservation and Search roles.
We offer an unbiased process that aids all dogs to retire whether that be from failed training, unable to meet their current training standards or they have come to the end of their service.
We offer to help bridge the gap from service to general population, to search for and rehome to the perfect home. We offer continued support and guidance to make sure these dogs live out the retirement they deserve.
