Ventura County Search and Rescue K-9 Unit is a volunteer non-profit 501(c)(3). Through the use of highly trained and tested handlers and their canine partners, provides assistance to local, state and federal agencies in the search for and the recovery of lost and missing persons. The K9 unit is trained in Area Search, Trailing, and Human Remains Detection (Cadaver). In Case of an Emergency: If you are confronted with a situation involving a lost or missing person you should CONTACT LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT IMMEDIATELY. The sooner a search is started the better the chance for survival. The Search and Rescue office # is 805-388-4257.
K-9s are trained to follow the path that a lost person has taken. Similar to traditional "tracking" dogs, these dogs require
a properly preserved scent article and are not distracted by other people in the area. These dogs work on long leashes. Trailing dogs
most frequently work trails that are several days old.
