In June of 2014, we unveiled our state-of-the-art Disaster Animal Response Team (DART) Trailer! This trailer is filled with all the equipment and supplies needed to care for more than 100 local pets during an evacuation. The provisions inside the trailer will be used to erect a temporary animal shelter. Items such as crates, bowls, leashes, food, water, medical necessities, administrative supplies, cleaning equipment and many other items will be included.

PAWS has annual training sessions in which we train local volunteers in disaster preparedness and on skills needed to run a temporary disaster animal shelter.

If you are interested in becoming a member of the DART Team or if you would like to add your name to our list of disaster foster homes, please call Bobbie Whalen at 734-2441!
