Working Dogs for Conservation

DDAF’s third grant to WDC will support food, equipment, and veterinary care to rescue and train five high-energy at-risk dogs from shelters. The dogs will be involved in a wide variety of successful conservation-related searches such as sniffing out snares set by poachers in Zambia, checking on populations of endangered species, locating invasive plant life, among many other projects conducted. With additional dog teams trained, more searches can be undertaken and more dogs unsuitable for family life can be saved. The rescue is committed to saving these dogs regardless of whether or not they complete the training successfully.
