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

Rating: 5 stars  

What I have to say about this organization is the dogs and handlers are dedicated and serious about what they do. Many people go to their place of employment grudgingly day after day for the money they receive. These volunteers (workers) for the Arkansas Search Dog Association (American Search Dog Association), give their money and time to the job and drop everything day or night, days to weeks at a time as needed using their own money. Never expecting money in return, to cover their expense for the person or persons they are called to find- dead or live- but are determined to find them. Special people fill these shoes and I am glad to know them and would love to see more people become aware we should be reimbursing them, putting them on a county or city paycheck to compensate their need. Think of what it would be like without these brave soles and their canine partners who strive to do good for others. I am not saying take away their nonprofit status, but to reimburse them their itemize cost only. I am an advocate for this organization.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would approach the counties they assist for a reasonable reimbursement cost ratio per county or extend a plea for a funding designated for this organization to offset some of their expense. I understand their may be some money that is designated, however it is not for personal expenses. I would also seek volunteers from over counties so that the state is covered locally and know the areas.
