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.
SCSARDA searches exclusively for missing persons.
We do not search for missing pets.
