How We're Supporting Veterans With Dogs
Helping support positive mental health
Funding two hero dogs Devon & Buddy
Meet hero pups Devon & Buddy
Elmo is a sweet natured puppy, with a calm and easy-going personality. He was carefully selected to embark on his journey to become an assistance dog for a veteran with a mental health condition. Elmo is currently living with his specially trained puppy socialiser who is tasked with teaching him all the important things pups need to know alongside the additional training he will undertake for his very important role.
Helping Transform Lives
Veterans With Dogs is dedicated to providing highly trained dogs to both current and former members of the British Armed Forces, who are suffering from service-related mental health conditions such as PTSD. Founded by Craig MacLellan, Veterans With Dogs is the UK’s only charity of its kind. MacLellan himself suffered the devastating effects of a mental health condition for many years following his time in the Forces but found huge support from his own assistance dog.

The National Trust
We’re delighted to be working in partnership with the National Trust, who look after many of the beautiful places we and our four-legged friends love to explore.
Each month we support UK charities with a donation of our Devon-made dog’s dinners. Our Happy Paws charity initiative is a big part of who we are and what we do at Forthglade.
We believe every dog deserves the best life which is why we're proud to have recently joined forces with Vicky Pattison at RSPCA Southridge.
