Training Areas

It’s really important that our responders train in a variety of locations.  We don’t want our dogs to get accustomed to searching at any specific location.  If you have rural property (at least 100 acres), buildings (abandoned or occupied), piles of rubble or concrete, lakes, creeks or rivers in the San Antonio area that our responders can use for training, send us an email at info@alamoareasar.orgWe’ll post a link to your business website or a thank you to your family on Our Sponsors page.

Sponsor a Canine

Our canine handlers own, train and search with their canine partners.  They are responsible for the entire cost of training, maintenance and equipment for their canine partners.  Normally our handlers spend between $10,000 and $22,000 out of their own pockets each year.  By sponsoring your favorite dog, you will help defray the expenses they incur.  That will allow them to increase their level of training and response.  If you sponsor a dog, you’ll get some great items that feature your sponsored dog and we’ll list you or your business on the Our Sponsors page!  Click here for more information. 



AASAR is looking for a few new members. Successful members of AASAR are community minded team players. They enjoy the outdoors and learning new skills. You don’t need to have any search and rescue skills. We’ll help you get the training you need. For more information on volunteering, email
