Ramapo Rescue Dog Foundation

The Ramapo Rescue Dog Association (RRDA) is proud to announce the establishment of the Ramapo Rescue Dog Foundation (RRDF), designed to support and further the efforts of RRDA and to support the establishment of a canine training center in the New York metro area.  The Foundation was formed with a recent multi-million dollar endowment given to RRDA by the Estate of Ronald S. Kane and Mr. Solomon S. Grossman.

The Ramapo Rescue Dog Foundation is committed to supporting the working German Shepherd Dog in the fields of search and rescue, law enforcement and community services.  The Foundation envisions supporting the establishment of a training center to conduct research and to educate and train handler/dog teams and the search and rescue community at large.

Established in 1971, the Ramapo Rescue Dog Association (RRDA) is a section 501(c)(3) charitable, volunteer rescue organization that utilizes air-scenting German Shepherd Dogs to help locate missing indivuals in the wilderness and in disaster situations.
