CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire Fish and Game’s K-9 Unit is getting a $5,000 donation from TransCanada Corporation.

The unit consists of three teams that respond to over 125 calls each year. They conduct search-and-rescue missions to find lost hikers and people suffering from dementia.

The dogs also help find spent shell casings at the scene of wildlife crimes, locate illegally taken fish and wildlife, track suspects, and detect evidence in criminal cases for other law enforcement agencies.

Col. Kevin Jordan, chief of the department’s law enforcement division, said while canine unit handlers are conservation officers, the costs of care and equipment of the dogs are not supported by the state budget.

TransCanada operates hydroelectric facilities on the Connecticut and Deerfield rivers consisting of hydroelectric stations and associated storage reservoirs and dams.
