Many animal shelters have an overabundance of high-energy, toy-obsessed dogs. While these qualities often make them unsuitable as house pets, these dogs are likely to thrive when they have a detection career. In order to maximize adoption rates for these dogs, the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) has teamed up with Working Dogs for Conservation (WDC) to form a new program Rescues 2the Rescue.
