eMthunzini Trust is a registered Non-Profit and non-governmental organization under which Retreat 2 Eden operates. Based in Southwell rural area of Port Alfred in the Eastern Cape, Retreat 2 Eden is a 43 acre pro-life farm.
The K9 Hero project was established in honour of all the dogs that have given their lives in service of mankind - the unsung heroes of society.
The K9 Hero Project offers the following in terms of a Bridging Programme:
1. Upon arrival at Retreat2Eden, the K9 heroes are placed in a farmyard - a natural environment with grass, shrubs/trees, earth, shade, shelter, and a space to run whereafter they will be placed with canine friends according to their individual personalities.
2. The K9 Heroes are assessed in terms of their personality, emotion and physical well-being and the ability to fit into a normal family environment.
3. Retreat 2 Eden's Bridging Program e seeks to assist the K9 Hero to adjust to a normal family environment - this includes socialization and emotional assistance while living within a family unit of humans and dogs.
4. As far as possible, socializing the K9 Heroes with other types of animals to enable them to be adopted by families on farms.
5. Screening potential homes and matching them with the correct K9 Hero - a good match is a must for both humans and K9 Heroes.
6. Assisting the adoptive home in making sure that the integration of the K9 Hero into the home goes smoothly.
