In 2009, the AHS founded the Humane Emergency Animal Rescue Team (H.E.A.R.T.) Team, which is supplemented by a fifth wheel trailer and a knowledgeable response team. Our animal rescue program ensures that animals across the state and country receive the best care possible. We have trained our team extensively, focusing on issues such as All-Hazard Response, Evidence Collection, National Incident Management System, and Fractious Animal Handling. They are also equipped to remove animals from puppy mills, dog-fighting rings, hoarders, and disaster areas.
