Thank you for your Service

Nancy May and her cattle dogs, Razzle and Quest, have retired from SARDOC. Nancy and her longtime partner, Shalla, joined SARDOC in April of 1998. They responded to many missions with Grand County SAR, in Utah, and other agencies in several states. Nancy went on to train and certify Quest in Trailing, and later, Razzle in Water Search.

Many thanks to Nancy and her dogs for their service to SARDOC, SAR, and people who needed to be found.
