The Southwest Florida K-9 Search Unit is a non-profit team made up of highly trained volunteer support personnel, K-9 handlers, trainers and their canines. Our purpose is to assist law enforcement agencies, fire departments and emergency management services in a time of disaster or community need.

The Southwest Florida K-9 Search Unit is funded entirely by the volunteers of the team and donations or contributions made. This is a team of volunteers with a desire to give something back to the people of their community.
