Illinois-Wisconsin Search & Rescue Dogs (ILLWIS) has served law enforcement and fire departments since 1985. We are a search and rescue unit made up of highly trained volunteer dog handlers and support personnel. We help find missing and lost persons utilizing scent-specific tracking/trailing dog teams and human remains detection dogs (on land and water).
In addition to unit certifications, our dogs are also certified annually by nationally recognized law enforcement associations, such as the North American Police Working Dog Association (NAPWDA) and Law Enforcement Specialists (LETS).
We primarily serve Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin. We never charge for our services. We have had over 950 call-outs.
** If a family member is missing, please call your local police department and request our services.
