Another neat addition to this yearly celebration of bears was the Bears and More sponsorship of Arizona Search Dogs.
Arizona Search Dogs took on an obstacle course on the lawn in front of Bears & More and AZ Dolls and Gifts. Arizona Search Dogs is a nonprofit organization that trains, certifies, and develops Canine Search Specialist teams. These teams are mobilized with Urban Search and Rescue (USAR) Task Forces to assist state and local jurisdictions in urban and wilderness search and rescue. Some of our team members have been deployed to the World Trade Center, The Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, flooding in Houston, Texas, Dallas Fort Worth tornado, New Orleans for Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Rita, Hurricane Gustav, Hurricane Ike in the Gulf Coast, and local searches for Valley residents.
