The Virginia State Animal Response Team is a volunteer network committed to protecting animals in the case of a disaster.
Any Animal, Any Disaster, Anywhere.
The Virginia State Animal Response Team (VASART) was created through a private-public partnership to serve as a unifying network of organizations, businesses, federal and state government agencies, and individuals that supports the prevention, preparedness, response, and recovery for emergencies affecting animals. Because disaster response starts at the local level, VASART will build Community Animal Response Teams (CARTs) across the state. Local coordinators will lead the development of these community teams consisting of volunteers who will respond to emergencies at the local level.
