 "The original inhabitants of the British Columbia Central Okanagan region were the Interior Salish people.  They lived off the areas natural resources and followed seasonal cycles of food gathering, hunting and ceremonial life.  Father Pandosy settled in the area in the early 1860's.  The settlement was later to be called 'Kelowna", which meant Grizzly Bear in the original Salish dialect."

Each 18" high by 24" wide signed and numbered print is $99 (plus a $20 shipping fee if you do not live in the Vancouver or Okanagan areas), are not framed and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.  Only 500 prints are available for purchase

Java is a Cadaver Dog certified annually through NAPWDA (North American Police Work Dog Association).  A cadaver dog is trained to locate human remains.  Cadaver dogs trained for water searches are able to search bodies of water, either from shore or most commonly from a boat, and will alert to scent rising from a submerged body.

In January 2014, Java and his handler, Marijke Barnson joined our team to offer their services to help locate victims.  In September of 2014, Marijke purchased a boat suitable for Java to train and search from.  Java’s annual certification alone costs upward of $1,000.  He has been certified with NAPWDA for the past 4 years.  Thus far, Java’s training, the boat and operating costs have been financed by Marijke personally, hence the call for help.

If you can donate to help Java, please click here.  Thank you!
