Below find pictures of our dogs in action together with volunteer members of our Canine Search and Rescue Unit aiding Israeli elite troops in their mission to find and rescue the kidnapped boys.
Once word broke out that we were available to aid in the search, calls came in from high-ranking officers throughout the region who requested our help. Our dog teams were shuttled in and out of Arab villages by crack IDF units who appreciated the edge that operational sniffing dogs could bring to the table, when searching under rubble, in caves, and in abandoned structures. Unfortunately found all kinds of interesting things, but have yet to find Naftali, Ayal or Gilad.
Our unit is still in great need of volunteers to help maintain kennels, and help with training and searches. We are also in great need of financing to upgrade our response vehicles, expand our kennels, and sponsor much needed additional dogs both in the security and Search and Rescue divisions of our unit. It takes months of training to ready dogs and handlers for the high standards required of any operational team. Please send a generous contribution to help us defray costs of petrol, vet care, food and maintenance of dogs and volunteers, training and so much more.
