Folks, before I let you in on what we are doing at the shop, I have to ask you this, what drives you when life challenges you?
Can you imagine having to find a missing child, neighbor or an elderly person,at a moment’s notice ??
Our friend Marsha, is one of a handful of people that locally operate Iowa SAR-K9 (search and recovery) utilizing dogs
that are specifically trained to find missing people in the water and on land. Marsha and others train and handle dogs of differing breeds and train them for this work.
These dogs are nationally certified, they and their handlers attend seminars throughout the United States to maintain skills and further their training.
Their mission is to find a missing loved one as soon as possible in all kinds of weather.
I have known Marsha since we were kids back in high school. She and her spouse operate a farm and a small trucking company as well.
Marsha and the other handlers pay for all of this out of their own pockets and they need our help!
Marsha approached me earlier this summer with a boat they had bought and asked for help in rigging it for her line of work in SAR-K9, I jumped at the chance to do so!!
The boat is perfect for an operator, two dogs and handlers to travel safely on any river or lake and it didn’t take Sheryl and I long to get it where it needed to be.
Guys, this is where I am going to ask you to donate to a very worthy cause, if you have a few bucks to spare, or are a business that could use a write off that will help keep this operation going that would be great!!
I am providing a direct link so that you can go there and check out what they do, and there is a donation link where you can do so directly.
Or, you can send a check to our shop with Iowa SAR-K9 in the pay to order of line and we will make sure it is hand delivered to Marsha.
