Ground Zero

A Letter from Our Founder, Becky Switzer

Since 2017, Ground Zero has evolved from a personal passion and dream to a thriving nonprofit organization garnering local, statewide and national attention.

The heart and soul of our work is preparedness. It’s not always fun to think about the worst-case scenario, but it’s critical. In the aftermath of a natural or man-made disaster, timing is everything. The evidence is clear that a trained handler and canine can do in minutes what takes a human hours and even days. Being prepared when tragedy occurs can mean the difference between life or death.

The needs are greater than any one family or organization can handle on its own. We rely on the support of generous corporate, foundation and individual supporters, like you to ensure the availability of skilled canine and handler teams when disaster strikes.
