What We Do
MARK9 Search and Rescue (SAR) provides free services to Law Enforcement, Fire/Rescue, Parks and Wildlife and other official agencies of any size that require the use of highly skilled K9s and handlers to locate missing people. The team motto is "Always ready, Ever able" so the team is available 24/7/365.
The team trains for 4 types of searches: Live Find, Human Remains Detection (HRD), Trailing and Water. We do this by seeking out training locations all over the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex and the surrounding counties and placing our handlers and their K-9s in as close to real situations as training will allow. To learn more about our searches navigate to our search page.
MARK9 believes that the most important part of a search is to prevent it from occurring. Based on this belief MARK9 provides demonstrations in Alzheimer Safety and Sit & Stays as a way to help prevent people from becoming lost.
