Search and rescues have been a hot topic in Erie this summer, and our furry friends are doing their part to help out.
Northwest Pennsylvania K9 Search and Rescue work to find missing people across six counties. Dogs like Kandi learn the skills to assist local emergency agencies in rescue and recovery missions.
The K9 Search and Rescue is not eligible for state grants and funding like many other emergency groups. To keep training the dogs and rescuing lost loved ones, the group is holding a bartending fundraiser at the Bourbon Barrel Wednesday from 5:30 to 9.
K9 Search and Rescue will also be a part of Erie Gives.
