Rescue Dogs – ready for mission 365 days a year for you

It starts with the desire to help people in need. More than 2000 times a year IRO dogs go on missions to save lives all over the world. They spot people burried under avalanches or help find an old lady who got lost in the woods. Other dogs go on international missions after big natural disasters, such as an earthquake or a flood.

Learn how a cute little puppy evolves to a potential life saver on Sunday, 24th April 2016 the International Day of Search and Rescue Dogs.
