Berkshire DART

The Berkshire Disaster Animal Response Team (DART) was formed  as a result of a heightened awareness and growing concern for the vulnerability of animals in disaster situations, and the impact a lack of animal emergency planning has had on people and communities.

The Mission of Berkshire DART is to assist with evacuation and care of animals displaced by natural and man-made disasters. This is done by operating a pet shelter concurrent with shelters for people during disasters.  Berkshire DART also promotes education, safety and disaster planning assistance to animal owners.
