ABOUT


Telluride Avalanche Dogs play a unique and vital role in mountain rescue and safety education efforts in the Telluride community. 

 

Our organization is dedicated to providing financial and foundational support for Telluride's hardworking avalanche dogs.

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.
