Members of the Central MA Disaster Animal Response Team will also be on-hand to answer questions about emergency preparedness for pets and animals. Several CMDART members participated in Katrina-related relief last year, as well as many local incidents. They are currently seeking new members to add to the team. Be sure to stop by and say hi to JoAnn.

Members of the CMDART team prepare to give baths to the Otis arrivals who came in September after Katrina. Tyvex suits were used to aid prevention of contamination from affected animals.
