I first met OFP's founder, Mary Cortani, in 2011. My heart was warmed by her group's powerful mission and I was amazed at what she had been able to accomplish is such a short amount of time. Mary has transformed her passion of working with dogs and helping others into an organization that has blossomed in the last 2 years and been able to help so many deserving group members. It is truly wonderful to see our Veterans receiving the help they need through OFP. The other beneficiary of this program are the dogs, many of which are rescued from shelters, and given another chance in life as well. Mary's organization proves that love can heal all wounds.

Review from Guidestar
Sacramento Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals

The National Disaster Search Dog Foundation (SDF) actively recruits canines from shelters and rescues throughout CA to train them for urban search and rescue and the Sacramento SPCA has been invaluable to our efforts. Over the years, SDF has recruited a dozen dogs from this shelter with the help of their knowledgeable and caring staff.

As one of our recruitment volunteers who evaluates potential canine candidates recently put it best, “I can't say enough good things about this shelter. I have been to many of Northern California's shelters and this one stands out as a modern, well run, clean, and organized facility. The staff is outstanding. Even though their job is not easy, I can tell that they have a true love of animals and treat every dog with respect. Lizz (Rescue Coordinator) seems to be very devoted to her job. In all of our interactions, I see how much she cares about the dogs… She is passionate about all animals…and works extremely hard at her job.”

With the economy hit hard in recent years, and shelter budgets hit harder, it can be tremendously difficult for these groups to function at the level they would like, but the Sacramento SPCA is a wonderful place to adopt from. Their dedicated staff is a pleasure to work with and they truly care about the wellbeing of the animals in their care. SDF is proud to work with such a terrific group and grateful that they think of our foundation when they meet a high energy canine that needs a job. Thank you Sacramento SPCA for your tireless work on behalf of these wonderful creatures and for helping SDF to turn rescued dogs into rescuers!
