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

There are plenty of ways you can continue to volunteer your time and efforts to make the world a better place—even from the comfort of your home or inside the warmth of an organization! Check out these eight opportunities to give back during the winter.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. helped make the world a better place and advocated for equal rights for everyone. Use MLK Day as a time to honor his legacy by giving back or doing something good for somebody else.

With a new year comes new opportunities to give back and do more good. Remember that there’s never a bad time to start giving back. Even if you fall off track, there’s always time to get back in the saddle.
