The team of trained individuals may be activated when an emergency situation forces an evacuation of homes with pets; a transportation accident involving livestock requiring assistance from community animal resources; or an emergency situation involving animal or public health.

On Saturday, Oct. 14, Eagle County and several community partners will host a coordinated training from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Eagle River Center, located at the Eagle County Fairgrounds. Anyone interested in serving on the volunteer Animal Response Team is encouraged to attend. (RSVP by the end of Tuesday, Oct. 10.)
