The concept of disaster animal response teams originated in 1992 in south
When Hurricane Katrina struck
The team that goes out into the disaster area and rescues animals that may be trapped or left behind. The main goal is to get the animal out of harms way and into a controlled situation – a shelter. This team requires search and rescue skills, animal handling skills, good animal instincts and generally good physical stamina. Sheltering includes the physical sheltering of the animals, veterinary services, feeding, cleaning, walking and grooming.
