USAR dogs and the Christchurch earthquake

The dogs of Urban Search and Rescue played a special part in the initial emergency response after Christchurch’s 6.3 magnitude earthquake on 22 February 2011.  Here is the special edition of Pawprint, the newsletter of the NZ USAR Search Dog Association.  This newsletter provides the best detail yet of how the earthquake event unfolded and the role of the dog teams in searching for survivors.

I’m pleased to say that Canine Catering Ltd was one of the many small businesses and individuals which donated funds to the USAR Search Dog Association as part of the SBS Marathon.

Please join me in again thanking the hard work of the NZ USAR search dog teams and particularly to Cairo who is  special massage customer (funded by his handler, Janelle).
