CVDART Donates $1500

Educating the community about the importance of making sure people and pets are prepared for a disaster, CVDART hosted a table at the 2022 Do Good Festival in Montpelier Vermont.  Using the donated State Farm Go Bags, 3 teams of 2 CVDART volunteers distributed these bags and talked with attendees about why preparation was so important throughout the day.

The CVDART Board voted to donate $1500 of this prize to DART Command Central. 

“The Central Vermont Disaster Animal Response Team is very invested in supporting the efforts of DART Command Central.  Recently, CVDART made a donation of $1500 to support the production of the Emergency Pet Shelter Module.  This module provides an efficient registration process during emergencies, which causes less stress for both pets and humans.”
