Our Mission

The mission of the American Rescue Dog Association® (ARDA®) is to promote and enhance the capabilities of canine search and rescue/recovery teams by providing education, training, certification programs, and standards of excellence to volunteer canine handlers and/or volunteer canine organizations, which provide as a public service, competent and capable handlers, support personnel, and canines for search and rescue/recovery work. 

News & Notes

The spooky season is coming to an end before we know it, but that doesn’t mean we’re over October. Scary doesn’t always have to be bad. Instead, use these final weeks as a reminder to do some scary-good deeds and give back to your community.

In order to lead a truly altruistic life, it’s important to take stock of your own mental health, as well as those around you. There are a ton of free resources and tactics you can use to check-in and improve your mental clarity.

It’s hard to believe that another month has come and gone. As we enter October and inch closer to the holiday season, year-end giving and volunteering also ramps up.
