K9 SAR Inc. is a not-for-profit volunteer organization that provides trained personnel and dogs to emergency service and police agencies to assist in finding lost or missing individuals. The team specializes in search operations in wilderness, wooded, semi-urban and urban settings.
These members provide the K9 handler and dog with a person (dogsbody) to search for and provide positive reinforcement. This is a fun and easy going role. We and our dogs love Dogs Bodies! Dogs Bodies can also become involved in other activities such as assisting at working bees, fundraising and awareness days and general administrative duties.
Training commences Mid June will be every second weekend right through until December. The commitment will depend on the number of volunteers.
All K9 SAR Inc. personnel are volunteers and are not paid for their work, training or support of their dogs. Nor do K9 SAR Inc. charge for rescue / recovery operations
