Animal Disaster Volunteer Training Opportunities

It's the TRAINING time of the year!

If one of your New Year resolutions is to become an Animal Disaster Volunteer, now’s the time to sign up with your local Community Animal Response team and put their “Orientation” or “New Volunteer” class dates on your calendar. There’s a role for every skill and ability!

Every community needs volunteers who are trained and ready to work collaboratively within the Emergency Management system. It can feel daunting to start a team, but there are lots of great people and resources who can help you get it done and grow into a tremendous asset to your area. We’ve included a few resources to help you. You can also contact us if you need help connecting with the right resources. The list below includes some great training opportunities, as well as support resources.

If you’re leading or starting an Animal Disaster Response or Large Animal Technical Rescue (ATR) team, HALTER Project has helped numerous groups across the country start, train, and grow. Give us a call! 707-318-7526
