North Bay Animal Emergency Response Groups

As of summer 2017, Sonoma County has 2 animal emergency response teams staffed by fire service technicians. These teams are identified as  "HART-1" and "HART-2". HART stands for Horse-Animal Response Team.

Areas served by HART-1: Sonoma Valley, Eastern slope of Sonoma Mountain, Western Mayacamas, Bennett and Rincon Valleys, including Annadel, Sugarloaf, Jack London, and Sonoma Valley State and Regional Parks. HART-1 (Glen Ellen - Kenwood Fire Departments) may also become a Typed Resource providing mutual aid to other areas if requested.

HART-2: (Graton, Monte Rio, Sebastopol Fire Departments) can provide assistance to western Sonoma County, especially the Russian River-Laguna region.

Sonoma County Animal Services maintains 2 funds and a fully equipped trailer. These funds are: Large Animal Rescue Fund and the Animal Emergency/Disaster Fund.

In Marin County, 2 agencies train and maintain Animal Technical Rescue skills and work together to assist when called. Your donation to Marin Humane and/or Marin County Sheriff Search & Rescue will help support their continued response to incidents involving animals throughout Marin County.

In Butte County, NVADG, (North Valley Animal Disaster Group), provides evacuation, and shelter services to support Butte County Animal Control. NVADG is an all-volunteer group, which also deploys to disasters throughout northern California when requested by emergency managers.

The Napa-CART was established in Spring 2017 and is developing resources to respond in local emergencies and disasters.

HOW FAR WILL YOUR DONATION GO?
-- Training for one Animal Rescue Technician averages between $350 and $500 for a 3-day to 4-day training. Sometimes students need additional funds to cover travel expenses to training. A 1-day Awareness Class may be covered by federal grants, but often tuition can range from $35 to $125 per student. Volunteer training is usually free through a CERT or CART program, but students must provide their own personal protective equipment (PPE). Contact your local fire department or animal control agency to find out if they would like to schedule a training and need financial support.
