Our Mission

The New Hampshire Sled Dog Rescue, History & Education Center (NHSDRHEC) is a 501(c)3 organization that was formed in 2013.

The NHSDRHEC is dedicated to providing a home and job for life to sled dogs in need. In addition to taking in rescue and second chance sled dogs, we also strive to provide education to the public about northern breed dogs and preserve New Hampshire's rich dog sledding history.
