Mikey & The Dogs

Israel DOG Unit


Dog Unit
For Security & Rescue



Mikey and the Dogs – The dog unit in Israel, has set as its main goal saving lives. Every year, about 4,000 people disappear in Israel. Most of them are located after a relatively short time, but about 200 of them are considered missing at high risk, whose lives are in danger.

About a quarter of all those missing are never located, and every year about 50 people are added to the sad list of thousands of missing in Israel.

In 2006, we took on the difficult mission, but so important, of finding missing persons, and over the years we have been privileged to take part – along with other organizations and bodies – in locating dozens of missing persons.
