National Search Dog Foundation
Chapter – Ventura, CA
The Blue Thong Sisters of Ventura support the National Search Dog Foundation through fundraising events and volunteer opportunities. This organization rescues dogs from shelters and trains them and partners them with handlers. When they graduate they are deployed to various areas around the United States in times of need: (i.e, hurricanes, bombings, fires, train wrecks, etc.) to search for people whom they can rescue. The Ventura BTS chapter had the pleasure of volunteering for their big event, "Handler Recognition Day", and had an opportunity to see many of the dogs put through their paces and see how they climb debris piles to search for humans, it was an amazing experience for all.
