Description
People shouldn't have to worry about their animals during an emergency. And it's our job to protect the animals too. Grateful for LSART and the funders volunteers and staff who make it work.

"The Louisiana State Animal Response Team (LSART) developed from the Louisiana Veterinary Medical Association (LVMA) Disaster Committee. After the response to Hurricane Katrina, LSART became a division of the Dr. Walter J. Ernst Veterinary Memorial Foundation (WJE). WJE is the non-profit foundation associated with the LVMA.

We are a of groups and individuals with an interest in animal well-being related to emergencies or disasters. Veterinarians, animal control officers, humane organizations, and citizen volunteers make up LSART's membership list.

LSART makes resources available to parishes for emergency planning, response and recovery. LSART also assists local jurisdictions in planning and preparing for all types of emergencies involving all animals."
