Disaster Animal Response Team

The D.A.R.T. program was developed by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) to provide assistance to animals in disaster situations, including tornadoes, hazardous-materials incidents, floods, earthquakes and, in our case, tsunamis. The goal of the program is to teach volunteers how to prepare their families and the community to rescue and shelter animals when a crisis happens.

Please RSVP to [email protected] if you will be attending.

 

D.A.R.T. meets at 6pm every 2nd Wednesday of the month

Crescent Fire Protection Dist., 255 W. Washington Blvd. in Crescent City


What Can A D.A.R.T Do?

Raise community awareness, teach disaster preparedness for families and their pets, provide cohesiveness through regular monthly meetings and offer training opportunities throughout the year. Educate the public about disaster awareness and preparedness, through appearances at community events.

Assist local shelters during hoarding, neglect or puppy-mill situations, if extra help is needed (by setting up a temporary shelter for the animals, until these animals are integrated into the system) .

When asked to deploy, assist at the temporary pet shelter (under the umbrella of the requesting agency, such as the HSUS).
