I was with a friend of mine the other day and I had a Ray Allen catalogue with me. For those of you that are not familiar with Ray Allen it is a catalogue of elite K9 equipment for working dogs, primarily police and narcotics, but a little of everything sprinkled in. As he was thumbing through the pages waiting for me to finish my phone call he came upon the one page that had any interest for him…T-shirts. I was just hanging up the phone when he pointed to a t-shirt and said “You should have this shirt” I looked at the picture and all the air whooshed out of my lungs and I almost choked on instant hot tears. The black t-shirt jumped out of the page and burned my eyes.
A silhouette of a dog with the letters outlined: SEARCH and RESCUE and then the byline: A hero on both ends of the leash.

The Rescuer at the Rainbow Bridge
Unlike most days at Rainbow Bridge, this day dawned cold and gray, damp as a swamp and as dismal as could be imagined. All the recent arrivals were confused and concerned. They had no idea what to think for they had never experienced a day like this before. But the animals who had spent some time waiting for their beloved people knew exactly what was happening and began to gather at the pathway leading to the Bridge to watch. They knew this was something special.
Another ‘HOMELESS to HERO’ story, Finnegan, a beautiful purebred Labrador was found living in a crate. Finn was already 18 mos old before he came to us. His owner surrendered him for being too rambunctious which is a wonderful trait for a SAR dog! He spent 4 mos. in Marie’s home and had several teams competing for him. He now lives with a veteran FEMA TASK FORCE 1 handler in Santa Fe, New Mexico!
