HUMANE INTERVENTION

American Humane Association works in association with American first responders, emergency managers, civic leaders, animal protection advocates, healthcare providers and families to prepare for and cope with disasters and crises. 

Red Star® Rescue

 

In 1916, American Humane Association accepted an invitation from the War Department to help animals used by the U.S. Army during WWI. With the acceptance of that invitation, the American Red Star® Animal Relief Program was born.

Today, the Red Star rescue team responds to natural and/or man-made disasters, including animal cruelty, to assist animals and communities in crisis.

The team consists of a national network of professionally trained staff and volunteers. An 82-foot mobile command center — fully equipped for both animal rescue and veterinary services — is the centerpiece of a fleet of boats and vehicles ready to deploy anywhere in the country on a moment's notice.
