Moraga, CA, June 30, 2009 --( If your pet is not as prepared for a disaster as she or he should be, this is the workshop for you. In half an hour the presenter will show you how you can make sure that your pet is ready by creating a go-kit for your animal with important documentation, by creating an emergency supply kit that includes items for your pet, by teaming up with a buddy in your area so that your animal will be taken care of even if you are not home.

About Lamorinda DART

Lamorinda DART (Disaster Animal Response Team) is pioneering a new and exciting response to issues surrounding animals in disasters. Traditionally, Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT) take care of human animals only. After the passage of the PETS Act of 2006 (Pets Evacuation and Transportation Standards Act) little has changed, even though the PETS Act requires that FEMA sponsored or subsidized entities (such as CERT) take domestic pets and their owners into account. In the absence of adequate animal disaster response many animals (and some of their owners) perish, even today.

Lamorinda DART (Disaster Animal Response Team) consists of Lamorinda CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) graduates from Lafayette, Moraga and Orinda, who have received additional animal sheltering and rescue training and are able to provide disaster response to all animals (human and others). As first responders Lamorinda DART members are in a unique position to save both human and animal lives and prevent unnecessary suffering when the next disaster happens.
