Review for National Disaster Search Dog Foundation, Inc., Santa Paula, CA, USA
As a volunteer for SDF, as well as a donor, I can attest to the fact that your donations actually go to the cause! They have a very small paid staff and the rest is volunteer based. Every donation, large and small, is acknowledged with a letter with a handwritten note. I write many of these notes so this is first hand knowledge. They get no governmental support; strictly donor supported. They rescue the dogs, train them, train the handlers and pair them together at no cost to the fire departments. All dogs rescued will go to a family if they don't complete training. They are never returned to a shelter once they are rescued.
