In Karen's own words:


"I have decided to complete a 3 mile swim on

14th December 2015 in aid of the

Essex Retired Police Dogs Fund (ERPDF).

Please sponsor me, as without this fund police dogs that have worked most of their lives could suffer.

I re-homed Retired Police Dog Kato - 18 months ago he became seriously ill and ERPDF have supported us so much and have been able to provide funding for Kato's treatment, enabling him to make a good recovery so he can now enjoy his retirement.

These dogs serve and protect; they are truly amazing animals.

Please donate to this worthy fund and I will swim

my heart out thinking of these gorgeous dogs! "

Tribute to Ann Adams


Ann was one of our founding volunteers who assisted at many of our fund raising events.


Sadly Ann passed away suddenly in November 2014.  Ann was a kind and generous woman and we were privileged to have her determined support.

Dogs had always been a part of Ann's life, from family pets to competing at Crufts.


Ann was very proud when her daughter became a dog handler with Essex Police and, like the fund,

she felt strongly about the need to support

police dogs when they retire.


Essex Retired Police Dogs Fund would like to recognise Ann's endeavours by presenting a trophy, kindly donated by her family.


It is in her memory that this inaugural cup,

The Ann Adams Cup

will be presented each year to the

front cover photo winner of the ERPDF

Calendar Photographic Competition.
