Do you know of any kids that like to colour? We want them to colour in Search Dog Fia, and share it with us on Facebook. 🐕 Maybe you can even add in a background! She is able to search anywhere, so let your imagination go wild!

We will let Fia pick the winner at the end of the month, she has a good nose for talent! She might even post a video saying thanks, hopefully you can all speak 'dog'! 😍

Please share far and wide 🐾 🐕‍🦺

SARDA held a local training session in Wicklow today. Our ever-loyal dogsbodies spent the best part of the day in their bivvy bags on the hillside, ready for any eventualities – the most probable one of them obviously being found by a very excited (and perhaps a little muddy) search dog. 😅 Thanks for this excellent shot, Edelle Doherty.
We are doing our annual fund-raising collection in Cork tomorrow (Sat 11th). You will find our collectors and SARDA dogs in the city centre and all the main shopping centres (Bishopstown, Douglas Court, Blackpool and Wilton) all day tomorrow. Come and meet the dogs and chat with the handlers if you're around!
This morning SARDA Ireland were tasked by An Garda Síochána in Clonakilty to assist in the search for a missing person in the area. As the dog teams were preparing to travel the missing person was located deceased. Our condolences to the missing persons family and friends.
