Dogs to the res­cue

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Remember When? -

MOST peo­ple are aware of moun­tain res­cue dogs but few are aware of Kent’s own search and res­cue dogs group.

The an­i­mals of SARDA (Search And Res­cue Dogs As­so­ci­a­tion) are trained to the high­est stan­dards and kept in homes as pets, but are reg­u­larly called in to help po­lice in the hunt for miss­ing peo­ple across the county.

On Sun­day a se­lec­tion of the work­ing dogs, in­clud­ing bor­der col­lie Bryn who is un­der train­ing with Stu­art Kenny in Ash­ford, vis­ited the By­brook Gar­den Cen­tre in Ken­ning­ton, to raise the pro­file of their work.

Their visit also en­abled group mem­bers to col­lect £360 in do­na­tions.

Full de­tails of the char­ity are avail­able from Caro­line Dunn on 07966 539979.
