Good Plans

SAMSAR is an all volunteer, non-profit mounted search and rescue unit serving the Pima County community. It is the primary provider to the Pima County Sheriff’s department for mounted search and rescue services.


SAMSAR members have a combined experience of more than 50 yrs. and have recently reorganized as SAMSAR to provide more effective paraprofessional mounted search and rescue services.


Our teams consist of horse/mule and rider and have undergone rigorous training and field experience to meet field certification requirements.
