The objective of this project is to provide resources to 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations that provide canine-assisted search and rescue (SAR) services in the United States.
The dog and handler train for hundreds of hours every year. Some are trained in airscent, trailing, water, avalanche rescue, disaster recovery, HRD (human remains detection) and are deployed via local sheriff offices. The majority of K9 SAR organizations operate on a volunteer basis so the majority of our grants should be used to assist the K9 teams with training, medical care, transportation and personal equipment.
We are accepting applications for Find It! grants. Please read the project summary for a full description and parameters.
