Search Dog Foundation
Ojai, CA (near Santa Barbara)
SDF strengthens emergency response by partnering rescued dogs with firefighters, and training them to save lives in the aftermath of disasters such as earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, building collapse, floods and vehicle accidents. The Planet Dog Foundation provided SDF with a $10,000 grant to sponsor the training, certification and ongoing maintenance of one team. We are thrilled to be the proud sponsors of Greg and Dax- Greg Gould is a fire fighter from Albany, NY and he is paired with a handsome black lab named Dax. Greg and Dax are currently undergoing rigorous training in preparation for their certification and a long career together responding to emergency situations. Most recently, the Search Dog Foundation deployed 3 certified teams to assist in rescue and recovery efforts in New York following Superstorm Sandy.
