Michigan Search and Rescue

It's been a long weekend of training for the Michigan Search and Rescue canines and their handlers.

Saturday, training continues at Camp Henry in Newaygo County. The team constantly trains to provide support for personnel in the search and rescue of lost or missing persons. Canine training begins from the time a puppy or dog comes home.

All the handlers volunteer their time, and the canine teams are available for assistance 24/7 at no charge.

Lisa Zang, a cadaver dog handler, says, “I just think this is a great opportunity to give back to the community. It is a great way to show how much you care about canines and humans. We have a fabulous team that love and support each other.”

Any breed of dog can become a search and rescue dog if it goes through the proper training.
