What we do

Founded in 1994, The Sarasota K-9 Search and Rescue Team is a group of professional and highly trained volunteers and canine partners – who assist in the location of missing persons. The team is Florida State certified and able to assist any emergency agency throughout the state of Florida- when requested through the 911 systems or mutual aid agreements among Counties. The team has responded to over 250 missions; and no agency or family has ever received a bill for our services. Along with our search & rescue training in the field, we also take great pride and resolve being out in our community, educating children and families on the importance to staying safe and self-rescue from any dangerous situations in which they may find themselves.



  • Raise, invest and leverage thousands of dollars annually in philanthropic contributions to create and support innovative programs and trainings to generate sustained impact in local communities.
  • Hold ourselves accountable to this cause through our steadfast commitment to continually measure our improvements in our training, certifications, K-9 medical health, and educational programs. It is imperative that we project a clear vision for our future training facility where the training of search teams will come to Sarasota, Florida and be trained so they can go on and serve their home communities.
