BOONDOCKS K9 S.A.R - CERT - Florida and Puerto Rico

We are a non-profit volunteer organization founded in 2014, by my wife, my three children, and myself. Because of our passion for working with dogs as a family, and the incredible working availability of our well trained K-9's we decided to provide canine search and rescue together with other humanitarian aid to our community. To carry out this task we began scouting for volunteers with the same drive and devotion to provide this service. We are ready to aid and assist our local, state or federal governmental agencies, as well as provide help to individuals, the community, other groups registered as a non-profit, non-governmental organizations, and Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT), which we will train and certifying for free.

Our volunteers, with a passion for their mission, have been trained extensively in a variety of skills making them invaluable as first responders and when assisting the professionals in delivering services to those in need.

 Here at BOONDOCKS K9 S.A.R - CERT, we have a recruitment strategy for volunteers that care about each other as well as those we serve as if they are family.

 We look for volunteers with a clear idea of what needs to be accomplished and with direction to expand our horizons. 

Therefore, at a minimum all staff are trained in areas such as: Hazwoper, CPR or higher, Wide Area Search, Bloodborne Pathogens, Fire Control, Cribbing, National Incident Management System, Crime Scene Preservation, and Advanced CERT training.


In September, 2017, BOONDOCKS K9 S.A.R - Community Emergency Response Team became very involved in providing assistance after hurricane Maria in one of the worst disasters ever experienced on the island of Puerto Rico. 

Boondocks worked in partnership with USSAR, and PRUSAR Task Force 1, as well as with federal, state, and municipal agencies. 

As these partnerships developed BOONDOCKS K9 S.A.R - CERT never left the island, and eventually evolved into the 

BOONDOCKS K9 S.A.R - CERT Puerto Rico Unit, which we proudly boast is one of the premier first responder units on the island.

We would rather be called and not needed, than to be needed and not called.

We are driven to maintain a professionally advanced quality TEAM ready to serve 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
