Animal emergencies create danger for animals and their owners.  Lack of preparation often leads to unnecessary tragedy, human injury, and economic loss.  Because horses are so large, significant advanced planning is required to evacuate and shelter them temporarily in case of disaster.

We were called by Schuylkill County 911 this morning to assist with an accident where a horse trailer rolled over on Interstate 81 North near McAdoo. I was able to contact a vet that didn't hesitate going to the scene to evaluate and treat the horse. The fire company was able to cut the trailer roof open to be able to remove the horse, Scarlett, safely. Vet care was administered to Scarlett and she was loaded into a new trailer and was sent to an animal hospital for further treatment.
I would like to thank EVERYONE that was involved in the TEAM effort today for assisting. The State Troopers, the fire companies, the tow truck drivers were all wonderful during the accident. A very special thank you to Beth from the Schuylkill Animal Response Team and Brenda from the Columbia Animal Response Team for all their help today with Scarlett. Both of you are AWESOME!!!
This was truly a team effort with Schuylkill CART, Columbia CART and Luzerne CART. And last but certainly not least a very special thank you to Dr. McBride for immediately going to the scene when I called her this morning. There was also a dog and kitten involved in the accident and they both are doing very well and are not injured.

On Monday, November 3 the team was activated to respond to a meth lab in Edwardsville. We were called to assist with the removal of a mom and her 7 puppies that were only 3-4 days old. We were able to get mom and puppies to safety without any issues. They are being well taken care of by one of our local AWESOME rescue friends.
Thank you to the Edwardsville Police Department, the Edwardsville Fire Department, the Pennsylvania State Police and the narcotics team for all their hard work to keep our communities safe.
