The North Alabama Search Dog Association is an all-volunteer team that fields dogs for search and rescue missions. We specialize is using dogs to locate missing people such as hunters, children and Alzheimer patients. In the last 2 years, our dog teams have assisted in locating 2 Alzheimer Patients, a hunter and a hiker. We also perform human remains searches on land and water. Such land searches are necessary to support law enforcement with potential homicides and to locate missing people who have not been located over time. Water searches are often a key component of recovery after a person drowns as the dogs can narrow down the location of the deceased and aid in a quicker recovery for the family. As a team, we train nearly each week, making sure our dogs and handlers are capable of taking and maintaining national level certifications and reliably perform in search operations. We respond free of charge across the state of Alabama and also parts of Tennessee and Georgia.

We use donations in a variety of ways. We have regular funds we require, such as insurance and minimal equipment (replacements of radios etc). We highly recommend that our members attend outside training events to get a different perspective on their dogs and their training. As these events cost upwards of $350, we often apply for grants to help us decrease that cost to the handlers. If we have enough funds, we provide equipment to the team such as shirts, jackets, life jackets, radios, GPS and GPS dog collars. One of the particular items we are ‘saving’ for right now is a new boat for us to do water training. We have a small boat but it is very narrow and unstable, particularly with an active dog on the front working. We would like to minimally upgrade that boat to a slightly longer but wider version so that we can have more stability. We would also like to add a better motor than just a small electric motor.

Premiere Guest

Canton-and-TARDIS

 

**** GUEST ANNOUNCEMENT****

We are so excited and honored to announce our Premier Guest for 2018…..Mr. MARK SHEPPARD!!!

Thank you Rick for the “Official News Release”……

CON KASTERBOROUS 2018 TO WELCOME FAN-FAVORITE ACTOR MARK SHEPPARD OF DOCTOR WHO, SUPERNATURAL, FIREFLY, GALACTICA, AND MORE…..
Joining the lineup for Con Kasterborous 2018, the premiere southern Doctor Who convention, is prolific actor Mark Sheppard, a fan favorite across popular science fiction and fantasy TV series: Doctor Who, Supernatural, Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, Warehouse 13, Star Trek: Voyager, The X-Files, Sliders, Chuck, Dollhouse, Charmed, Medium, The Bionic Woman and more.
Best known to Doctor Who fans for his 2011 role as “Canton Delaware III,” a taciturn FBI agent who helps the Doctor repel an alien menace during the historic Apollo 11 moon launch, Sheppard will join Catrin Stewart, who plays Doctor Who’s mystery-solving Victorian heroine “Jenny Flint,” and classic Who composer Dominic Glynn, among other guests.
“It’s a thrill to welcome Mark to Con Kasterborous,” said show organizer Bonnie Auten, who founded the con in 2012. “Fans have been delighting in Mark’s charismatic performances and weird, wonderful characters for decades, from his menacing pyrokinetic killer in an early X-Files to conniving ‘Badger’ in Firefly, from Supernatural’s unforgettable ‘Crowley’ to Doctor Who’s heroic ‘Canton Delaware.’ It’s fair to say that any show is improved the moment Mark enters a scene —
The son of veteran British thespian Morgan Sheppard — who joined him on Doctor Who as an older “Canton Delaware,” reunited with the Doctor long after their encounter in 1969 — Sheppard got his acting start in the 1992-93 series Silk Stalkings and in the Oscar-nominated 1993 film In the Name of the Father. His other movie appearances include Lady in the Box, Evil Eyes, Unstoppable and Mysterious Island — which he also directed — and he held recurring roles on other series including White Collar, Leverage, 24 and Soldier of Fortune, Inc. He starred in an early 1990s production of Billy Hayes’ Cock and Bull Story, for which he received the 1992 L.A. Drama Critics’ Circle Award. He also voiced the protagonist of the 2009 videogame The Conduit, in which he was reunited with his father Morgan Sheppard, who played his mentor.
Before taking up acting, Sheppard was a trained musician who performed and toured with, among others, Robyn Hitchcock and the Television Personalities. As a session artist, he backed records cut by numerous bands across Europe. Since 2011, he’s been “The Voice” for BBC America, the cablenet that imports Doctor Who and other British entertainment stateside.
