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

Summer is the perfect time to show your kids that giving back can be fun. Choose an organization that has a shared interest among your family and ask about volunteer opportunities.

All work and no giving back makes for a dull workplace! Talk to your employer about already existing programs such as matching gifts or time off to volunteer.

Use the power you have to make the world a brighter, better place, and you’re sure to also experience some of that kindness. Together, we have the power to change the world!
