Disaster Dogs of Illinois

"Lending paws in time of need, paws saving lives"

Rainbow Bridge


With heavy hearts, we must share that Search Dog Lola crossed the Rainbow Bridge yesterday afternoon with her handler Johnny Subia at her side. Lola was a stray..., rescued from death row by a Bay Area rescue group, and eventually came to the attention of trainers Pluis and Kate Davern at Sundowners Kennels, where SDF Search Dogs were being trained. She was a perfect fit and after completing training, was partnered with Johnny as part of California Task Force 4, which she served with for 8 years. Our thoughts go out to Johnny and his family both at home and at the fire department - Lola leaves big paw prints to fill!

Lola was a K-9 member for the National Disaster Search Dog Foundation and not a member of DDI.
