RESCUE ALLIANCE Disaster Animal Response Team is a volunteer-based organization dedicated to animal welfare in times of a disaster or emergency, by providing sheltering, fostering or rescue of domesticated animals.

When Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans in 2005, a poll was done and it found that 44% of the people that did not evacuate made that choice because of their companion animals. During that time 100,000 animals were left behind out of that it is estimated that approximately 75,000 died.

To best prepare for potential disasters and for weather that poses a safety risk for our animals, we recruit volunteers year round to aid Rescue Alliance’s disaster animal program.


RESCUE ALLIANCE is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that was formed by first responders dedicated to saving, protecting, and caring for companion animals and their families during natural and manmade disasters. When a hurricane, fire, tornado or other disaster threatens the state of Louisiana or surrounding states, we will be there to assist with teams of trained volunteers. Our trained team utilizes resources to erect mobile shelters and provide food and treatment for companion animals during this time.
