K9-SAR, ( formerly H.A.R.T SAR) is a team dedicated to bringing lost dogs home.
This group was originally created for Scrappy who went missing on Langsett moor. We never gave up looking for him and after 4 weeks of intensive searching we finally found him but he had sadly passed away after a tragic accident, a result nobody wants but brought closure for his devastated family and they were able up lay him to rest in his favourite place.
We decided to stay together and build a successful search team and since January 2002 have carried out over 70 search and rescue operations, many with great success. This is Scrappy’s legacy to all.
We have grown tremendously as a team with new drone pilots and Ground Searchers, using the most up to date high tech thermal equipment for both air and ground.
We have been able to achieve so much due to the ongoing support of this group and their own dedication to bringing dogs home.
#K9SARWe are raising funds for much needed equipment to help us find more missing souls much quicker and get them home safe.
Our experience lately is that of the need for more batteries for the drones, we only get 25 minutes flying time per battery and each drone pilot currently have 3 which once used take a long time to re charge which ultimately costs us vital air search and track time. The batteries cost around £160 each and we are aiming to raise enough funds to have another 3 each per drone pilot.
We will then look at raising funds for thermal scopes which are vital for ground searchers to see in places where the drones are unable to reach…
Please help us find the lost souls quickly, which in essence could save their lives and avoid the heartache to owners searching for their beloved family member….
