Joining the SCSARDA Team

SCSARDA members are highly trained volunteers who are committed to serving the community. Our members come from a variety of backgrounds but we all share a love of dogs and a passion for helping others.

Becoming a certified Search and Rescue volunteer requires a commitment of both time and resources. It can take six months to a year to acquire the necessary training and skills to be operational on a search and even longer to become a K9 handler. Members are expected to pay for their own training, personal equipment, and dog expenses. SCSARDA does not carry workmen's comp for its members or coverage in the event your dog is hurt. We do carry general liability insurance. 
 

To learn more about volunteering with SCSARDA or becoming a member please join us at one of our information sessions. These information sessions last about an hour and include plenty of time for questions.  
 
Please email info@scsarda.org if you plan on attending one of these orientation meetings. The specified dates are Monday evenings at 6:30pm in the Spartanburg area.
