      BOONDOCKS K9 UNIT 

Our goal is to provide our K9 unit service to Red Cross, Fema and any other non-profit emergency organizations nationwide including Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, and Haiti.

COMMUNITY EMERGENCY RESPONSE TEAM (CERT)

The Federal Emergency Management Agency, a component of the Department of Homeland Security, has promoted the use of the Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT) since 1994. These teams of volunteers are designed to help out when first responders are unable to respond to all the needs of the community. 

CERT educates individuals about disaster preparedness, and offers a consistent, nationwide approach to volunteer training in basic response skills that professional responders can rely on during disaster situations, which allows them to focus on more complex tasks.

 


We are a CERT Unit in training that will be  specialized with trained volunteers working with or without dogs to support emergency personnel to search and rescue victims. 

Our CERT team program offers training in basic response skills, such as fire safety and disaster medical operations. With proper CERT training, you can help protect your family, neighbors and co-workers if a disaster strikes.


Our goal is to create and maintain an active Technical Rescue K9 Team and a CERT team specifically trained to assist with land and water searches, as well as natural or man-made disasters in which people may be trapped or missing. 



Our Volunteers & Supporters


" Our volunteers are committed to Puerto Rico due to the disaster aftermath from Hurricane Maria."

  

Thanks to our supporters Intervol, Course of Action Foundation, Legacy Church, Fundacion Stefano, Fundacion ANA PAULINA, Good Samaritan Shipping Ministries and many more that will like to stay unnanimous.  

We have meet so many groups from the Island and the USA here with boots in the ground. Groups such as Levantando el Valle in Anasco, Arecibo se levanta para su gente, and many more. All the Emergency management departments municipalities and State from the island and first of all the Puerto Rico Police. 

In the need of Supplies we are covered, but in the matter of daily expenses such as housing, food, gas and diesel expenses, storage and utilities are getting rediculous!

Animal Rescue Division


Even thou we are a Search and Rescue Unit that uses K9’s, Somehow we get calls for rescues of unwanted, abandoned, abused, or stray dogs. 

Of course who can say no! 

We rescue them and care for them — including training, playing, handling medical issues, and solving behavior problems.

Now! We believe these dogs are suitable for a permanent home.
