New England K-9 Search & Rescue
White Mountains, New Hampshire
New England K-9 Search & Rescue conducts searches for missing skiers, hikers, mountaineers, children and elders. This highly trained White Mountain rescue team is nearing 30 years of free service to the states of New Hampshire and Vermont. On average, the all-volunteer handler/dog teams respond to 45 rescue calls per year. In one year alone, the teams were responsible for locating five children – all alive – as well as numerous adults. In addition to their primary role as a search and rescue organization, New England K-9 Search and Rescue is committed to educating children and adults about outdoor safety. They reach over 1,200 school children yearly with presentations, search demonstrations with the dogs and take-home “Lost Proofing” literature.
