Organization Information

Mission Statement

We are an organization focused on canine training with an emphasis on canine scenting capabilities and how those capabilities can be best used to assist humans. We will be a handler/canine training organization first and foremost. We will directly provide resources of a physical nature or monetary nature to support search, rescue, recovery, and medical missions without expectation of reimbursement or compensation with a specific focus upon canine resources. We indirectly support search, rescue, recovery and medical missions by supporting, via monetary resources, training assistance, collaboration or any means available, those organizations that undertake, facilitate, or provide resources for search and rescue missions.


We provide resources to assist Fire/Police with land searches resulting from natural disasters such as flood, high winds, tornados. We also train to assist with buidling collapses and urban search. We train volunteers in land and water search techniques and work with them to help train K9 partners for use in searching for msising subjects such as alzheiemer patients, missing children, over due hunters/hikers. We primarily service Chester County, PA and the surrounding counties. We are available for mutal aid searches where additional resources are required for large-scale multi-agency searches. We do not search for criminals.
