No one wants their animals to become the victims of a disaster. The CVMF is working to prevent this from happening by providing relief and aid in the interest of animal health in the event of a disaster. They will accomplish this by working with the CVMA's Disaster Preparedness Committee and by providing funds for:
• Promoting awareness and preparedness for the public and the veterinary community.
• Providing housing and veterinary medical care of animals that are temporarily homeless.
• Using mobile temporary facilities for veterinarians, as needed.
• Supporting search and rescue animal team operations.
The CVMF generously funds the California Veterinary Medical Reserve Corps
(CAVMRC) programs and projects. The CAVMRC provides veterinary professionals with the training and credentialing necessary to support animal health and public health. Then CAVMRC-trained volunteers help animals when disasters strike in California.
