Our detection dogs are lovable rascals whose energy and obsessiveness make them terrible pets! But it's that same energy that makes them dedicated and passionate conservation workers.
We team up with animal refuge shelters to save dogs whose lives are at risk – usually troubled animals who are having a hard time finding a forever home.
By giving these special animals a purpose, we save their lives – and they repay the favour a hundredfold by saving other precious Australian natives.
In their downtime, they live like normal pets – they hang out at home with their handlers, come and rest in the office, go to the beach, play with other dogs and just generally live their best lives. The difference is, when these guys are working, they have an important job to do – one they love and that makes a difference for Australian biodiversity!
