Search and Rescue: We Find Lost and Missing People

Posted August 28, 2010 | 4760 Views

The Alpha Team K-9 Search and Rescue (ATSAR) is a team of dedicated men and women who are passionate about finding lost and missing people. The team consists of 15 humans and 11 dogs, including me and my dog Zena.Zena and I joined the team in 2007. At that time, Zena was only 8 weeks old when she started her career. Zena is trained in Wilderness Airscent -- the ability to locate lost persons and alert the handler when she has a find. Zena is also crossed trained to alert on human remains.I personally love working with dogs and helping others in time of need. There is no greater satisfaction then being able to bring someone home alive to their loved ones or give others closure in times of crisis. Zena and I are also members of the FedEx Emergency Response Team.
