K9 SAR Volunteer Training and Certification
Great Basin K9 Search and Rescue (GBK9SAR) is a non-profit 501 (c) (3), volunteer organization with operational members in Weber, Summit, Salt Lake, Morgan, and Wasatch Counties. Our mission is to train K9 SAR teams and certify them to the highest standards in order to provide K9 SAR services, at no cost, to public safety organizations throughout the Intermountain West.
