Two Rescue Dogs Added To LA County Fire Search and Rescue Team

LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Two rescue dogs have been added to the Los Angeles County Fire Department search and rescue team, the National Disaster Search Dog Foundation announced this week.

Bond and Mattis were added to Urban Search and Rescue California Task Force 2, the foundation reported.

“Now, they join the ranks of two- and four-legged heroes across the country who are ready to search for survivors in the aftermath of a disaster,'' an official with the foundation said in a news release.

“In the next year, each handler and search dog team will work together every day, honing their skills, growing their incredible bond, and preparing for certification to make them deployable with their fire departments and task forces.''
