NEK9 teams have participated in hundreds of searches since our founding in 1981, and have saved public safety agencies thousands of dollars through the use of volunteer resources.

All NEK9 services provided to requesting agencies and to the family of the lost person are free of charge.

NEK9 members incur all costs including gas, vehicles, training, equipment, and dog expenses. By donating to NEK9, a non-profit organization with 501(c)(3) status you can help offset the cost of each member.

Your tax-deductible donation to NEK9 will be used for such things as equipment, training seminars and veterinary expenses for injured K9s.

Please send your tax-deductible donations to:

PO Box 407
Grantham, NH 03753
