A new rescue boat for K9Gusztav to help save lives

Hi, my name is John Maczko, and this is my partner K9 Gusztav (a Portuguese Water Dog). I am the Commanding Officer – Director of Operations of Amphibious Response Support Unit ONE based out of the Calling Lakes District in Saskatchewan, Canada (Fort Qu'Appelle).

Our volunteer organization has been helping to save lives in-on and near the water since 2015. We have responded to help people like you, your family, friends and co-workers. We have spent thousands of hours at boat launches, at beaches, on and in the water so boaters and beach goers can feel safe and confident that we’re close by to help prevent a tragedy when trouble is near.

We’re reaching out to you...

To help improve our response on the water and the work we do, we are looking to purchase a water rescue boat that will meet our needs and the needs of the people we serve. After much research, we have found and secured a Rigid Inflatable Boat that will do the job. We have also made available some of the funding needed for the purchase. We hope that through your generosity, we can raise the remaining amount. By donating, you are helping to save lives.

Thank You!
