Louisiana State Animal Response Team
Time To Prepare
We encourage you to take precautions to protect yourself, your family, your animals and your property in the event severe weather occurs throughout Louisiana.
If you have unaddressed animal recovery/ rescue issues, please call your local OEP (Office of Emergency Preparedness) at:
Hurricane Laura 2020
For all of those affected by Hurricane Laura, our hearts go out to you and your family.
Earlier in the week, LSART VMRC supported Louisiana Dept. of Agriculture and Calcasieu Parishes
during mandatory evacuations prior to landfall of Hurricane Laura. Our trailers were available to provide transport of citizens pets that were evacuating. Calcasieu Parish Animal Services did an excellent job of keeping owners and pets together.
LSART VMRC is now supporting Calcasieu Parish Animal Services by providing facility assessments and local clinic assessments. We had an excellent team of veterinarians from the LSART VMRC who were able to do in person assessments and provide the parish with essential information to support these business and get them back into a functioning clinic. We will continue to work with animal control services until the need for support is complete.
