Tonto Rim Sports Club donates GPS dog collars to
Tonto Rim Search and Rescue
The Tonto Rim Sports Club donated a Garmin GPS
dog collar system to the Tonto Rim Search and Rescue Dog Team at
the sports club’s annual banquet on March 25.
The devices help TRSAR track dogs as they search
for people in distress.
TRSAR Dog Team leader Susan Starr said the squad
has four dogs trained for search and rescue missions, each with
their own handlers. She said four younger canines are in training.
Starr said she and other members of the search
and rescue squad eventually hope to equip each of the four active
dogs with the GPS collars.
