Canine Alert Search Team is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization formed in 2005. Our mission is to provide, at no cost, highly trained search and rescue canine (K9) teams for New Hampshire's Fire and Police agencies within Hillsborough and Cheshire Counties. Our primary area of expertise is in using our teams in a wilderness environment to locate lost and missing people. Team members are required to have MLPI, ICS/NIMS, SOLO Wilderness First Aid, CPR, and FUNSAR.We also have dogs trained in Human Remains Detection and Water Recovery.

In addition to our primary area of expertise, we are members of the International Rescue Dog Organization and we are working towards some of our team being qualified for International deployment by the IRO via the United Nations. We have been sponsoring yearly IRO testing events since 2007.

We also embrace the belief that we have an educational responsibility to the communities that we serve. Every year we and our dogs go to schools, scout troops, dog shows, fairs, church groups and the like to help educate the public about all aspects of canine (K9) Search and Rescue. Our audiences number from just a few to several hundred people.
