Need a Dog? - Rescues 2the Rescue

Need a Dog?

You work in the detection field and you’re in need of a candidate dog for training.  Anyone can view the available dogs and as a member you will see a full profile including their evaluation data and shelter contact info.

A note about scoring: Please remember, the scores are only a starting point.  Shelter staff and volunteers conduct the evaluations themselves and as a result, scoring will be more variable than if evaluations were all conducted the same person or team.  Dogs’ evaluation videos will provide you with more detailed information than the scoring data.  And don’t forget, you are welcome to contact shelters to ask if they can conduct additional tests specific to your training program.
