An elite search and rescue team from Fairfax, VA has landed in Haiti with their six canine workers in tow. In total, they are taking 48 tons of equipment, but the six dogs are a critical component. Another similar team is flying down from Los Angeles. These teams will work with USAID to locate and free survivors trapped in the rubble.
This is the second trip to Haiti for Czarzo, the black dog pictured here. He made the trip down there with his team to help the search and rescue team respond to a school collapse in 2008. He and his other FEMA certified disaster search canine buddies are down there working hard. Our thoughts and prayers are with them and their handlers. We know you will do your best.
