Frutos directs the NGO K9 Creixell that trains dogs to search for and rescue victims of natural disasters around the world

Pedro Frutos is the creator and director of K9 Creixell, an NGO dedicated to the rescue and salvage of people using trained dogs. We spoke with him to find out how he started and how he ended up creating this globally recognized NGO that has to date carried out over 800 rescue missions for people missing as a result of earthquakes or natural catastrophes around the world.

His dogs never get it wrong, and this determination helps to save lives.

He has always been passionate about dogs and helping others. His office has always been at home and his work schedule, and that of his dogs, is every day of the year except for Christmas Day. The first time he took part in a rescue mission he acted alone, but gradually he has managed to convince dozens of volunteers to join him from all over the world, all of whom are all equally committed to this incredible project. His dogs are never wrong, and this precision has helped to save hundreds of lives.
