KCSO K9 Unit headed to the Camp Fire right now!

***UPDATE (11/13) - The situation is still too dangerous for the dogs to participate in the rescue efforts. The dogs will stay here for now. HOWEVER, the MEN AND WOMEN of the KCSO K9 Unit went without the dogs and are doing their part to help. Once the situation is safe enough, the dogs will join in rescue efforts as well.***

Meet the KCSO Bakersfield Search and Rescue K9 Unit. These dogs are highly skilled and perform live-saving duties 24 hours a day. They are all trained to perform specific tasks which requires specific training. This training allows these dogs to find lost hikers, Alzheimer's patients, and children. They respond to missing persons cases in urban and wilderness environments, as well as natural disasters. In some cases the animals must go into dangerous areas in order to save lives. RIGHT NOW - The KCSO Bakersfield Search and Rescue K9 Unit is on their way to assist in the rescue and live-saving efforts at the Camp Fire in Butte County. The deadliest fire in the history of California. Now more than ever, they need your help and support. This is why it is so important for SAR teams to have the much needed equipment and training for themselves and the dogs. These amazing volunteers and dogs have put their own lives on hold to drop everything to help people in need. There are currently six K9's on the KCSO Bakersfield SAR Team. The SAR team is volunteer based and they do not receive any pay for the services they provide. All training, equipment and certifications are completely paid for out of pocket and by the generous donations from supporters. They are a non-profit organization with a 501c3 status. Donations can be sent to - Kern County Sheriff's Office Bakersfield Search and Rescue K9 Unit, P.O. Box 86152, Bakersfield Ca, 93380. Please include a note that the donation is for the "KCSO SAR K9 Unit Bakersfield" to make sure it goes to help the dogs that help us!
