Our sincere condolences to handler Sharolyn on the loss of K-9 Ariel. Ari was three weeks shy of turning 12 years old. He started in SAR at the same time Sharolyn did in the fall of 2003. In May of 2005, he certified scent specific area search, and in 2006, he added human remains detection to his qualifications. He worked until his retirement in 2013. Rest in Peace, your Royal Highness.
Central Lakes Search and Rescue is a K-9 SAR unit based in Minnesota that responds across the upper Midwest at the request of agencies legally tasked with finding a missing person. We do not self deploy and do not charge for our services. Our K-9 teams are mission tested using 3rd party evaluations. Donations are greatly appreciated.
