Description

Meet Tink, one of the most special dogs ever found. Emergency Rapid Response Team Inc. was searching for a Search and Rescue Dog. A dog which can help in finding people in collapsed houses during tornadoes and hurricanes. Instead of finding a perfect Search and Rescue Dog, at 6 weeks old Tink detected something entirely different. A life threatening condition of the Director of Emergency Rapid Response Team Inc. No Service Dog could ever detect the life threatening condition. Through time and patience and lots of training. Tink can spot 11 Medical Conditions, Search and Rescue, and Therapy for Disaster Clients. The Director of Emergency Rapid Response Team Inc. also helps others when he visits various vacation spots and helps families. Tink is also going to be bringing joy to kids with various non-profits in 2014. Tink helped over 15,000 families last year. The goal for 2014 is 30,000 families. Tink is one hero which has saved the life of the Director of Emergency Rapid Response Team Inc. She prevents the Director from driving when medical condition acts up and helps control the speed of the Director's Emergency Response Vehicle Codename Thunder-Tank. The Director of Emergency Rapid Response Team Inc. is a disabled US NAVY Veteran which injuries were caused by an incident in the US NAVY and Emergency Rapid Response Team Inc. is an all volunteer non-profit Search and Rescue Team in times of disaster which has been in operation for 18 years.
