YREKA, Calif. —A former Rescue Ranch dog is helping in Turkey following this week’s deadly earthquake.
The Yreka no-kill shelter rescues dogs and finds them a new home.
Former Rescue Ranch dog Shadow and his partner Los Angeles County firefighter Bob George are part of the canine disaster search teams deployed in Turkey.
He’s a black lab mix who was picked up as a stray in 2016.
Shadow is doing things like going through the rubble and searching for signs of life.
“To save a life and then to see a dog flourish like that, a dog that might not have made it, and then he’s going out and saving lives, that’s sort of the perfect circle isn’t it, I mean we can’t ask for more,” said Rescue Ranch communications director, Natalie Golay.
