The Paws of Life Foundation

The Paws of Life Foundation (PoL) is dedicated to the education of working dog handlers which include search and rescue (SAR) dogs and their handlers. PoL works with agencies at the local level to fund and provide training to working dog handlers and professional volunteer canine handlers. By providing initial and continuing training of the handler, we can help these individuals and their canine partners become a reliable and valuable resource for law enforcement and public safety agencies.
