Review for National Disaster Search Dog Foundation, Inc., Santa Paula, CA, USA
My husband & I have been donors to Nat'l Disaster Search Dog Foundation for many years. We love their mission; they provide a win-win in so many ways! First, they rescue dogs from shelters that may not be suitable for most people - high strung, active pups. Nothing wrong with these "wonder dogs" but just tough to place. The Search Dog Foundation takes these dogs and trains them to look for live people in disaster/critical situations. It's a rigorous program. Not all the pups graduate, but that's OK. They are placed in other training programs...the dogs are never returned to the shelter:)
After graduation, the dogs get placed with fire personnel - a team is then born! They are partners in all situations. Wherever there is a need worldwide, these teams are ready and able to help!
We have developed great friendships with the staff and with many of the teams. We currently are guardians of 4 teams and are so proud of all of them!
In conclusion, we LOVE this organization and its mission! IT's the BEST
