We are excited to welcome Captain back to Headquarters! Until recently Captain has been Fostered with wonderful families outside the Ottawa Valley during the last Foster Rotations. We’re looking forward to seeing more of this sweet boy around town.
Fire Team K-9’s Headquarters located at 480 Boundary Rd E. in Pembroke is owned and operated by Fire Team K-9’s Inc. Our building opened in Sept 2020 to support and fund our mission to source, train, and match service dogs with veterans and first responders including firefighters, police and EMTs. As a nonprofit corporation, all proceeds from services offered at Headquarters go to support Fire Team K-9’s service dogs.
Our name is homage to the smallest unit in the Canadian Forces, the Fire Team. A Fire Team is two soldiers who depend on each other. Our service dogs are partnered with their handler to serve as their Fire Team partner for life. Service dogs change lives “…. because when coming home is a fight, you’re not issued a fire team partner.”
Our founding nonprofit, Fire Team K-9’s Inc. was formed by Retired Canadian Military Veterans based on this principle of partnership between dogs and their people. Fire Team K-9’s Inc. is a proud Service Dog provider for Wounded Warriors Canada and the Royal Canadian Legion, Ontario Command.
This fundamental value of partnership is also central to our mission at Fire Team K-9’s Headquarters where we provide grooming, dog daycare, and pet training classes and workshops. The care and well being of your best friend is a shared partnership between our professional staff, you, and your pup.
