I followed your trail and found you! Now give me treats!
Feeding time in the zoo! We didn’t even all fit in the kitchen, there’s more in the next room!
Can you guess the dog’s name from the colour of their eyes?

*Missing Person Found - a community effort!*

We can thankfully report that the missing person in Co. Tipperary has been found safe and well. 

This afternoon, some of the missing person’s belongings were found by a farmer in his fields. The farmer reported this to the Gardaí who tasked Killaloe Coast Guard Unit to investigate. SARDA Ireland air-scenting dog team Jarlath and Syd also made their way to the field and began searching with Rescue 117 also searching the area from the air. 

Would you believe that SARDA dog Syd and Rescue 117 almost found the person at the same time? The heli picked up on the missing person on their camera at the same time as search dog Syd picked up on the missing person’s scent in the air using his super nose. The heli descended to confirm the find, and Syd arrived at the missing person. 

We are absolutely delighted that the missing person was found safe and well after spending the night outside. 

It really is a community effort when searches happen. Between the Gardaí, search teams, landowners, neighbours, family, friends, social media and more, everyone has a role to play. 

We normally try to name all the agencies involved but there were so many, that we don’t want to leave anyone out. 

So we will just say well done to everyone involved!

And well done to search dog Syd and his super nose!
