"When the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region integrated the Colorado Springs Animal Response Team and El Paso County Animal Response Team into a single community animal response team PetAid Colorado's Disaster Services program assisted us in training both staff and volunteers. Literally days after receiving our CART Training HSPPR's staff and volunteers were responding to the Black Forest Fire and putting our training to the test. Not only was the training we received from PetAid Colorado extremely useful to us during this disaster, but we also deeply appreciated the support that the PetAid Disaster Service's Program Director provided us as the State's designated animal disaster response coordinator during the long days of the Black Forest Fire response."
