After returning from the
World Trade Center attacks of 9/11, my beloved K9
partner Anna became ill and was unable to continue her
work as a search and rescue dog. Through the generosity
of the community, over 700 elementary school children,
their parents, and other caring citizens of the United
States, much needed funds were raised to obtain my
current K-9 partner Tango. It is with great appreciation
of this selfless act in mind, that I founded the Search
and Rescue Dog Foundation, Inc. This non-profit was
established to assist volunteer K-9 handlers with grant
money to replace retiring, ill, or deceased search dogs.
Please consider helping
these heroic K-9's and their handlers. Your generosity
is greatly appreciated.
