UF VETS Disaster Response
How We Respond
Our disaster response team works in coordination with the State Agricultural Response Team (SART). Where veterinary care is needed because community resources are overwhelmed (as in cases of natural disasters, hoarding cases, etc.), the UF VETS team can be requested by first reaching out to county emergency management offices

Support Disaster Response
UF VETS is primarily funded through grants and donations. Supplies, equipment, generators, tents, trailers, air conditioners, and trucks must be maintained to ensure that we are prepared to deploy during a disaster.
