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

You don’t have to choose just one cause or organization to support. You can provide support for various causes and various organizations. Take the time to figure out what feels right for you and your own goals for doing good in the world.

May is recognized as National Recommitment Month. It’s a time of renewal and even to build new habits or relationships. What will you recommit to this month?

Now that the world is showing signs of getting back to a sense of “normalcy,” use this Earth Day as a reminder that when we all work together, we can make a difference.
