Review for Arkansas Search Dog Association Inc, Little Rock, AR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When I first contacted the Arkansas Search Dog Association, I was a writing student needing to partner with a 501c3 for a grant writing course. The ASDA president, Donna Waugh, quickly responded to my inquiries, and provided so much information about the organization that I was both overwhelmed and in love. She clearly had a passion for working with dogs, and embodies public service to a T. Through her leadership, the organization has expanded its scope, and now cross trains dogs in search and rescue and cancer detection. All of the handlers and researchers are volunteer- paying money out of their own pockets to wade through snake-fested waters and ditches in the hopes of finding missing people. These people are brave, and get little recognition, but they continue to work and train hard every single day. Their dogs are professional, capable and heroic. Writing a grant for them was so easy because talent often speaks for itself. This group is made up of highly-educated, dedicated people, so I was thoroughly pleased when they invited me to join their team in a Communications role. I am inspired by them every day.
