President, Kicking Horse Rescue Dog Association

The Kicking Horse Rescue Dog Association (KHRDA) is extremely excited with the new possibilities presented to the rescue teams with the addition of aerial rated rescue vests.

These custom fitted rescue vests will allow teams to provide rescue services in a variety of mountainous terrain, including the use of helicopter external transportation.

This new tool for the rescue teams will decrease response time and provide increased safety to the dogs while working in rugged terrain.

“Having a custom fit vest that will allow the dog to search and be safely transported will greatly increase the ability for our teams to do their jobs.”  Adam Sherriff, President Kicking Horse Rescue Dog Association.

The KHRDA gratefully acknowledges the financial support of Columbia Basin Trust which delivers social, economic and environmental benefits to the residents of the Columbia Basin.

Without the support of the CBT the KHRDA would not be able to provide the residents and visitors of Kicking Horse Country with this essential rescue service.
