Ways You Can Help

It takes a community to raise a search dog team.  Time, money, skills, and equipment is what is needed for a search dog team to become an integral life saving member on a search and rescue mission.


Hiders are a vital part of a search dog’s training.  Our dogs need to be ready to find any person, of any age, in any place, during any time of day, and in any weather.  To be proficient and effective, our dog teams need you!  If you would be interested in a good game of hide-and-seek, please contact us and we will tell you when, where, and even provide the needed equipment to keep you safe and cozy while you spend quiet quality time in nature and make a very dog happy!


Search dog teams required specialize training and equipment which the handlers pay out of their own pockets.  If you’re able here’s a few ways to support our all-volunteer team either by direct cash donation*** or through participation in the following support organizations:
