While most associate search and rescue dogs with mountain rescue operations, dogs are also a valuable resource when searching for vulnerable missing persons in the lowland rural areas of England, whether they are elderly (sometimes suffering from senile dementia), despondent people or children who go missing for a number of reasons.
NSARDA Cantech train such dog teams to be deployed in Kent or in other counties when necessary. Our highly trained volunteers must be able to deploy rapidly and undertake effective search & rescue operations whenever called upon. In Kent alone, an average of 1800 people go missing every year. Although they do not all require a full call out or search, a number of them are classified as vulnerable. The authorities regularly call upon the canine and foot teams to assist with the searches.
NSARDA CanTech are a member of the National Search & Rescue Dog Association (NSARDA CanTech). We work closely with Kent Search And Rescue (KSAR), a member of the Association of Lowland Search And Rescue (ALSAR).
We are a charity (UK registered charity no.1101407) and provide our services to the Police and local authorities completely free of charge. Our members are people from all walks of life, each committing a vast amount of their time to train, attend searches and go fundraising. Their strong dedication is the drive allowing the unit to provide this extremely valuable service all year round. All the dogs are owned by their handlers and live with them. They are as much their loved pets as they are their working dogs. We rely entirely on the public's generosity to fund our teams' equipment, from harnesses to first aid kits, navigation equipment and more.
