Fundraise for the Search Dog Foundation
and be Part of the Search!

Help us train the next generation of Canine Heroes!

Rally your friends, family and community to support the Search Dog Foundation’s mission to strengthen disaster response in America by rescuing and recruiting dogs and partnering them with firefighters and other first responders to find people buried alive in the wreckage of disasters.

Using your time and talents, in 3 easy steps you can help us:

  • Recruit more dogs from shelters and breed rescues around the country.
  • Train more dogs to become rescuers alongside their first-responder handlers.
  • Support our existing Canine Search and Rescue Teams from coast-to-coast with ongoing training so they remain ready to respond at a moment’s notice when disaster strikes.
  • Provide health care for our Search Dogs throughout their career.
  • Support our Lifetime Care Program so that all dogs who enter our program never have to be rescued again.
  • Ensure no one is left behind after a disaster.
