Sonoran Search and Rescue, a not-for-profit, volunteer search-and-rescue organization affiliated with the Pinal County Sheriff’s Department, is looking for experienced trail riders to join its mounted unit.

Sonoran Search and Rescue is based in the Maricopa/Casa Grande area, and seeks volunteers within 90 miles of Florence.

The unit functions as “tight-knit, versatile team of volunteers, providing search resources trained in man-tracking, K-9 Search and Rescue, dive and technical rescue,” a release said.

For more information or for details on the next Sonoran Search and Rescue Unit or mounted training, contact Louie Villa at or by calling (602) 550-7230. For more information on Sonoran Search and Rescue, go online to
