The purpose of Alpha SAR is to train, certify, and provide search and rescue resources to assist with search and rescue efforts for lost and missing persons, without charge, to Federal, State, and Local Government Agencies.
Alpha SAR is a Search and Rescue team based in Houston, TX serving the greater Houston, Galveston, and surrounding areas in the search for missing persons. All members of Alpha SAR are 100% volunteers and are highly trained and certified by local and national agencies. We do train canines to aid in search and rescue, but not all members have canines. We also have flankers, man-trackers, mapping specialists, and UAV surveillance.
The environment is unique. You are outdoors, enjoying nature, and at the same time seeing these dogs reach their amazing potentials. Everyone is so friendly. It was an easy few hours. I got a location to walk to, and then I just waited. I sat and read my book while I waited for the dog to come find me. Don't worry, they give you all the direction you will need. Just be sure to bring a bottle of water, sunscreen, and bug spray! Next time, I might bring a pick-nick blanket and take a nap.

Alpha SAR team members are all great people. We all work very hard together to provide the best resource possible to law enforcement and other agencies for locating missing persons in and around Houston, TX. The team functions great together and we all get along great. I am proud to be apart of this team!
