North Valley Animal Disaster Group is off to a strong start for the 2020 fire season! Our newest volunteers are smart and dedicated and animal-savvy. Adding them to the still-energetic 2019 volunteers, and the hundreds of volunteers who have been doing this for years and we have an A+ Team! Thank you to all our volunteers who came for new or refresher training!
We learned a lot during the Camp Fire about the need for speed. NVADG has invested in current technology and is refining new processes that will make for faster, better, smarter tracking and scheduling. Together, all our volunteers are working through these new protocols and incorporating best practices.
We are working together with Regional and State level Community Animal Rescue Teams (CARTs) to help everyone prepare for a large-scale animal evacuation, which we pray will never happen. Preparation will include standardized training and agreed-upon certifications and background checks.
To all the recognized CARTs in California: Thank you for volunteering and we're doing this together!
