Being a registered charity, we receive no funding from the government. We rely solely on donations and sponsorship to keep the team operational. All funds raised go towards providing essential search and safety equipment such as dog first aid kits, radios, and hi-visibility clothing.
There are many different ways to support Search Dogs Sussex.
Would you like to increase your sales of special equipment or dog-related products by giving a discount to our team? Would you like your logo to appear next to the reputable Search Dogs Sussex branding when we take part in well-attended community events or on our website? We are always seeking to develop long-standing relationships with local and national businesses.
We train weekly and it is important to challenge our dogs and our people in the new training locations. We have a highly ethical approach to the areas we use and fully comply with environmental and conservational purposes. If you manage a large estate or own a woodland and have the grounds you think might suit our team, please get in touch.
None of our members receive any payment for their work. They pay for their own expenses and also contribute to the purchase of the equipment vital for search and rescue operations. We rely on the generous donations of partners and individuals to keep our team operational and welcome any financial support. If you can donate, please press the button below. No donation is too small!
We are one of the UK’s strongest search and rescue teams granted the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service. The strategies we use to train our dogs are unique and our people are proud of the extended set of skills they have. We love telling people about what we do and our dedication to our community.
If you are from the media or press, don’t hesitate to get in touch. We would be happy to invite you to one of our training sessions or open events.

If you are thinking of joining the team, you will need to prepare yourself for high commitment and hard work. Please read our FAQ carefully before getting in touch. Many people have unrealistic ideas about what it means to be a member of a rescue team. We know that it is not for everyone, and we don’t want you to be disappointed.
The recruitment for dogs is currently closed.
