From Rescued...to Rescuer
Founded in 1996, the National Disaster Search Dog Foundation (SDF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, non-governmental organization based in Santa Paula, California. Our mission is to strengthen disaster response in America by recruiting rescued dogs and partnering them with firefighters and other first responders to find people buried alive in the wreckage of disasters.
Willy and Georgia were both discovered in shelters by SDF Canine Recruiters. Willy traveled down from Washington state, while Georgia was actually named after her home state, proving that coast-to-coast, rescued dogs make great rescuers!
