The Search and Rescue Dog Association of South Wales is a team of volunteers dedicated to saving lives. Our operational area covers the whole of south and mid Wales from Pembrokeshire in the west and into English counties over the border when necessary. We also provide support for other SARDA teams in major incidents. We provide assistance to those lost and missing in both upland and lowland areas. Our callouts can range from the high points of the Brecon Beacons National Park to the Valleys and down to the coastal cities, and whilst much of our work is in remote and rural areas, we also operate in urban areas. Our dog handlers are all members of Search and Rescue teams in the area, called on to assist the Police and Mountain Rescue Teams in searching for missing walkers, mountain bike riders, children and vulnerable adults. We attend on average 30 callouts a year and are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The team is a charity supported entirely by public donations.
