DART needs volunteers
Anderson County Disaster Animal Response Team needs volunteers. The Anderson County Disaster Animal Response Team (DART) was formed in 2008 to provide assistance in the evacuation and sheltering of animals affected by a natural or man-made disaster.

DART is comprised of volunteers throughout the county who have experience in working with large or small animals, both companion animals and livestock, and are willing to help care for these animals during major emergencies or disasters.

What is required to be a DART Volunteer? Complete the free three-hour Department of Agriculture Credentialing class to be held in Oak Ridge. Sign the DART Code of Conduct. Attend DART planning meetings held at Anderson County Emergency Management Agency in Clinton at 6:30 p.m. on the first Thursday of each new quarter.

Be on call to respond (if possible) in the event DART is activated.

DART members may choose to work in an emergency animal shelter and/or perform field rescue/transport. Please contact Lin Chilcoat at themarlowmama@hotmail.com or 457-7846 for further information.
