Cornbelt sponsors additions for an EMA Trailer

K9 Handler Missy Nergard (K9 Brennan) and K9 Sergeant Joan Brehm (K9 Sula and K9 Buzz) had the pleasure of thanking the Corn Belt Kennel Club for the new additions to the SAR Trailer today but showing off the added equipment and answering questions at the Heart of Illinois Dog Show Cluster.

With their generous donation, we were able to add an HVAC unit and a generator to enable us to now have a critical mobile rehab unit/base camp that is completely climate-controlled for both humans and K9s and that can operate anywhere in the field.

Thank you again Corn Belt Kennel Club for your generous donation!
