February 7 Durham Animal Response Team (D.A.R.T.) – A group of concerned citizens formed the D.A.R.T. group following the devastation and heartache of Hurricane Katrina, which has collaborated with animal care professionals and emergency management personnel to care for hundreds of pets, horses and livestock (and their owners) in the wake of evacuations and natural disasters. Learn how you can be prepared to provide for your pets and/or livestock animals in the event of an emergency, and provide support to others within your own community.
