As part of its passion and commitment to healthy canines, Natural Instinct is working with Lowland Rescue, Oxfordshire in order to provide its search dogs with sustenance and their nutritional needs.
Lowland Rescue association is a charity and member of the UK Government’s UKSAR Operator’s Group, the official group which governs all of the UK’s onshore and offshore search and rescue operations.
