Our Gift to America:
SDF’s National Training Center
20 Years in the Making

“It truly warms my heart to count the number of people throughout the country who have joined us to build this Training Center. What a responsibility! Trust is a precious gift that we never take lightly. This Training Center is our gift to the nation – a giving back to all those who have put their trust in us.”
~ SDF Founder, Wilma MelvilleSDF Founder Wilma Melville

After 20 years of service to our country, the Search Dog Foundation is nearing completion on our National Training Center (NTC), our collective gift to America’s Canine Disaster Search Teams – providing them with a permanent home and unique training opportunities found nowhere else in the country.

The campus, located on 125 acres of historic ranch land, will enable SDF to train more canines and handlers each year, and offer simulated disaster sites and advanced training, seminars and Certification testing. When disaster strikes, these first responders and their canine partners stand ready to ensure no one is left behind alive.

Now, the next generation of Search Dogs needs your help…
