Created in 2003, H.E.A.R.T. (Humane Evacuation Animal Rescue Team) is a group of members joined together to form both a local and national emergency response team. We are a non-profit organization based out of Spokane. H.E.A.R.T. was designed to coordinate efforts to provide rapid response to events affecting the health, safety and welfare of human beings and animals. Activities include, but are not limited to small and large animal care, facility usage, evacuation, and providing mass care and sheltering for companion animals, livestock, wildlife, and exotic animals following a major emergency or disaster.
Due to our intense training requirements and proven skill in the field, we have been able to set up an agreement to help the American Humane Association on national disasters.
