Watch Some Search and Rescue Dogs in Action this Friday!
June 11, 2013
They help police and fire departments save lives. They find people who are lost and/or hurt in remote places that are hard to search. They are search and rescue dogs. Now, you will get a chance to watch these special and well-trained dogs in action.
The dogs, along with their human handlers, are part of the Missouri Search and Rescue K-9 (MOSAR) Unit. They work hard to find people who get lost after certain natural disasters, such as floods and tornadoes, strike. They can also be used to find crashed airplanes.
Some of these dogs and their handlers will be at Siloam Mountain Park on June 14 at 10:00 a.m. to give you a demonstration of how they do what they do. After the demonstration, you will get a chance to ask questions and meet the dogs personally. They may have a serious job, but that doesn't mean the dogs won't enjoy meeting you.
You will find the entrance to Siloam Mountain Park at the intersection of Garland and Ellsworth. If you have any questions about this program, contact the Excelsior Springs Branch at 816.630.6721.
