Please Donate to CARDA

CARDA teams have participated in thousands of searches since our founding in 1976, and have saved public safety agencies millions of dollars through the use of volunteer resources. All CARDA services provided to requesting agencies and to the family of the lost person are provided free of charge.  No person or agency is ever charged for CARDA’s services.

CARDA members incur all costs including gas, vehicles, training, equipment, and dog expenses. By donating to CARDA, a non-profit organization with 501(c)3 status [EIN 94-2476578], you can help offset the cost borne by each member. CARDA accepts donations of cash or equipment. As an organization CARDA does not accept donations of dogs.

Your tax-deductible donation to CARDA will be used for such things as communications equipment for members and veterinary expenses for injured K9s.  It will also be used to defray the cost of gasoline when members travel to searches, often several hundred miles.


Please send your tax-deductible donations to:
3056 Castro Valley Blvd., #101
Castro Valley, CA 94546

You can also donate using a credit card or your PayPal account


CARDA is a proud recipient of the GuideStar Gold Seal.
