North Carolina K9 Emergency Response Team, Inc. (NC K9 E.R.T.), is a 501(c)(3) tax-deductible non-profit organization. There is no charge for our services. We depend entirely on donations for financial support.

Members incur all costs including mileage, equipment, pagers, and dog expenses. By donating to NC K9 E.R.T., a non-profit organization with 501(c)(3) status, you can help offset the cost borne by each handler. NC K9 E.R.T. accepts donations of cash or equipment.

Your cash, tax-deductible donation will be used for such things as communications and team equipment, training, workers compensation, liability insurance and search expenses of those who respond. There are many ways to help and support NC K9 E.R.T.

Current Projects:

$50,000 – for a Marine Sonic Sea Scan ARC Explorer Sonar system. Our current system is no longer supported and parts are not available. The purchase of this system will give us the latest technology available.

$1,200 – for a 14’ Jon boat including trailer  for K9 use in ponds and streams that are not accessible by our larger boat.

$7,000 – for R/C Sonar Boat (Lil Buddy) to search waters that there is no access for a larger boat, which will allow us to search areas around and under bridges or other obstacles and record those searches.

Please contact us for more information on how to donate supplies or services.
