Happy New Year!

Posted on Posted in Milestones, News

Jack, Bailey, Cleo, Max, Lincoln, Zula, Oso, Fritz and all the rest of the KCSD dogs wish everyone a safe and healthy 2022.
2021 was an intense year for KCSD despite the seemingly relentless pandemic. There was exciting success on search missions but also the tragic loss of one of our newest search dogs Ruby. We responded to 49 searches, participated in 106 training exercises and contributed a total of 7,497 hours (227 hours/person average) to help people in distress in Washington.
We are grateful for the support we receive from our community and would be unable to continue without it. Our partnerships with the King County Sheriff’s Office and King County Search and Rescue Association are essential to our success. We start 2022 with eight new recruits and some of the best search dogs and handlers in the world and look forward to another exciting year.
