Get Involved

Join The Team

If you're passionate about dogs and eager to make a difference in your community, our team wants you! As a member, you'll be part of a dynamic group dedicated to assisting local and state authorities in search and rescue operations. You would be directly involved in helping to train the dogs and enhance your own skills in dog training, search management, land navigation, communications, wilderness medical, and some outdoor survival skills. Join with or without a dog.

 

Looking For Land

We're currently on the lookout for suitable land to enhance our training capabilities. Every training is at a new location, this helps the dogs adjust to working in new environments. 50+ acres with easy vehicle access to woodlands is best, the more land the better. We can also take advantage of commercial properties and workshop buildings as long as the environments are safe for both handlers and dogs. We carry liability insurance. If you have some property that you think might fit the bill, reach out and we can get you the necessary paperwork.

Reach out to us via email or submit a form on the Contact Us page.

Join us, and let's create a stronger, safer community together!
