Donations and Funding

How is SARDA funded and how you can help

All handlers and helpers are unpaid volunteers. Funds are raised mainly through public donations

All handlers and helpers are unpaid volunteers

No one receives any payment for their work with SARDA. All handlers and helpers are unpaid volunteers who give of their time freely.

Equipment is needed

Specialist equipment is needed by handlers and those acting as ‘training bodies’ for the dogs. This includes radios, specialist outdoor clothing and high visibility coats for dogs.

Funds are raised mainly through public donations

Although a small grant is received from the Irish Government (through the Department of Transport), funds to support the work of SARDA dogs are raised mainly through public donations.
