BENEFITING: Noah's Wish, Inc.
ORGANIZER: Noah's Wish, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Mar 20, 2011
Noah's Wish came into existence in 2002, not to duplicate existing efforts to help animals during disasters, but to expand on what was already in place. Too often, efforts to help animals during life threatening situations have been gravely inadequate. We recognize that animals need and deserve an organized, consistent and professionally managed national disaster relief program. Relief efforts for people are managed this way and we feel they should be for animals too.
The singular mission of Noah's Wish is to save animals during disasters with our rescue and recovery services and to mitigate the impact of disasters on animals through our educational outreach programs.
An increasing number of animals will be saved as Noah's Wish expands its education, networking and disaster response services across the United States, Canada and in other select international settings. This will be accomplished by:
* Educating and preparing individuals, communities and organizations to mitigate the impact of disasters on animals.
* Recruiting, training and maintaining a committed team of volunteers and staff.
* Developing collaborative working relationships with emergency response agencies and animal welfare organizations.
* Continuing to provide the highest standard of disaster response services.
What Makes Us Unique?
Noah's Wish is a not-for-profit, animal welfare organization with a singular, straightforward mission - we exist to keep animals alive during disasters. That's it. Having just one focus, Noah's Wish is able to direct all our resources towards ending the needless suffering and death of animals when disaster strikes.
We have trained and experienced staff and coordinators. Members of this highly skilled group monitor developing disasters and make up the organization's first response team.
Our volunteers are also trained and experienced. With our ever growing national network of volunteers, we are able to respond to disasters with a team of individuals prepared to provide whatever services are needed to ensure that animals survive.
