National Animal Rescue & Sheltering Coalition (NARSC)
Established in early 2006, the National Animal Rescue and Sheltering Coalition (NARSC) is an outgrowth of the unprecedented disaster season of 2005, during which major storms – most notably Hurricane Katrina – impacted more people and animals than any other storm in the history of the United States. In the years since Hurricane Katrina, this collective of organizations has grown into a strong coalition whose mission is to identify, prioritize and find collaborative solutions to major human-animal emergency issues. This coalition of national organizations represents millions of animal welfare, animal care and animal control professionals, volunteers and pet owners. NARSC is arguably the largest collective of experienced, qualified animal rescue and sheltering management professionals in the country. Member agencies have cooperatively responded nationally and internationally to natural disasters such as wildfires, flooding, ice storms, tornadoes, earthquakes and hurricanes, and to man-made animal disasters including puppy mills and hoarders.

International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW)
Founded in 1969, the International Fund for Animal Welfare saves individual animals, animal populations and habitats all over the world. With projects in more than 40 countries, IFAW provides hands-on assistance to animals in need, whether it’s dogs and cats, wildlife or livestock, or animals in need of rescue in the wake of disasters. The International Fund for Animal Welfare and the Petfinder Foundation formed a relationship in 2006 in the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, resulting in the IFAW/Petfinder Foundation animal-rescue trailer. The animal-rescue trailer has been an integral part of IFAW’s ability to effectively respond to disasters in the United States and to care for affected animals.
