Unfortunately, the signal from Lenox mentioned in the video turned out to be a false alarm, according to ABC.
Search and rescue dogs are an important aspect of disaster response. Their unique talents and training can mean the difference between life and death for a trapped or endangered person. And their recovery service can offer closure to a victim’s family.
The AKC Reunite Canine Support and Relief Fund, created to honor the work of the dogs who performed search and rescue missions in the aftermath of 9/11, has awards hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants to K-9 Search and Rescue teams. Learn more or make a donation here.
