Ways to Help

To help relief and recovery to communities affected by floods or fire, see links below. The HALTER Project supports efforts aiding animal disaster rescue & sheltering, veterinary response teams, and recovery programs for farmers & ranchers.



The HALTER Project

The HALTER Project is a grass-roots program with a vision: To help animals in emergencies and disasters by supporting efforts of communities and agencies to train and prepare for a ready response to, and the care of, animals in everyday emergencies and large-scale disasters.
What we do:

  • Inspire animal owners and their communities to be prepared for emergencies and natural disasters.
  • Support training and development of Animal Technical RescueTeams.
  • Provide education& information resources for the whole community, including senior and disabled residents, non-English speakers, and tourists.
  • Connect donors with nonprofit organizations who provide aid to animals is disasters in their communities.


THE HALTER Project supports local fire agencies, Animal & Emergency Services, and community emergency and animal disaster response groups, to bring needed information and training resources to rural residents and other at-risk neighborhoods.

HALTER helps the whole community improve outcomes for animals in emergencies and disasters by encouraging local agencies, businesses, non-profits, faith-based and neighborhood groups to communicate and collaborate.
