What We Do

Dogs, with their keen sense of smell and intelligence, are a huge asset to a search effort.  It takes patience, dedication and hundreds of hours to become an effective canine search team.  An effective search team also relies on numerous support people to get the job done.

Join the Cause

We are looking for neighbors with the skills, dedication and a desire to serve the Kitsap community in a meaningful way.  Does that describe you?
