The Hunterdon County Division of Emergency Management has an animal disaster response trailer containing necessary resources to quickly establish a temporary animal shelter in times of emergency.  The trailer was released from the New Jersey Department of Agriculture and purchased through Homeland Security Grant Funding.  

This trailer will enable Hunterdon County’s Animal Response Team (CART) to train and exercise and be ready to respond in times of disaster. The events of Hurricane Katrina indicated that sheltering for animals was essential to protecting the lives of residents with pets.  When those in the path of the Hurricane were unable to bring their pets to a shelter with them, they refused to abandon their animals and subsequently remained in their homes during the hurricane.  The Hunterdon County Community Animal Response Team has performed in various presidentially declared disasters.
