Providing Prevention Response & Recovery for Animal Emergencies

The Connecticut State Animal Response Team (CTSART) program is a collaboration among government agencies, not-for-profit organizations, industry, and volunteers for preparing and responding to animal needs in disasters. It is a public-private partnership, organized to prepare our state for any disaster that involves domestic animals in Connecticut. CTSART is the signature program of the Connecticut Veterinary Medical Foundation.

CTSART Goals

  • To facilitate a prompt, effective response to emergencies involving animals in Connecticut
  • To decrease the health and safety threat to people and animals
  • To minimize the economic impact of animal issues in emergencies
  • To prevent or decrease the spread of animal disease in emergencies

CTSART missions include deployment of co-located companion animal evacuation shelters, building volunteer networks trained and state certified to assist with animal needs in disasters and public education.
