Massachusetts Rescue and Recovery K9 Unit

MARK9 is a charitable, non-profit 501(c)(3) volunteer search and rescue unit dedicated to the training of search and rescue dogs, handlers and support personnel in order to provide professional and highly-skilled search and rescue resources in the event of an emergency response event.


MARK9 is recognized by the Massachusetts State Search and Rescue Dog Federation as a Certified SAR Canine Unit.

MARK9's Search Dog Teams provide services to Law Enforcement Agencies and Fire/Rescue Agencies FREE-OF-CHARGE and STATEWIDE upon request to assist in locating lost persons due to a multitude of situations.  MARK9 does not self-deploy but may call appropriate agencies to offer our services.  MARK9 does not search for drugs or narcotics, bombs, or participate in criminal pursuits but will search for victims of crimes or evidence of a crime. MARK9 does not investigate potential arson fires, but can search for victims of fires.
