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.
Blake and Dora didn’t have an easy life on the streets before joining the SDF family, but now that they’ve entered SDF’s Canine Training Program, they have a new “leash on life” and are excelling during their Search Dog training!
