Search And Rescue Saturday–SDONA Building Search

by Mr. Taleteller on

Today’s topic — building searches.  This weekend Küster and I find ourselves helping one of our favorite search associations, Search Dog Organization of North America (SDONA).  Searching in old empty buildings is actually something that our team does quite a bit.
