Telluride Avalanche Dogs play a unique and vital role in mountain rescue and safety education efforts in the Telluride community. Telluride Avalanche Dogs are trained to perform under pressure in rescue situations, providing a fast and effective means of locating buried avalanche victims - often faster and more effectively than their human counterparts. TAD was granted a 501 c 3 non-profit status. Its purpose is to provide a funding stream for the hard working and highly trained rescue teams which provide 365-day coverage for emergencies in and around the Telluride region. www.tellurideavalanchedog.org
