Pet Safe Coalition, Inc.


The Pet Safe Coalition was originally created in 1998 as a working
idea to assist the overlooked pet populations of disasters.  It wasn't
until 2005 that the Coalition was officially founded, and at the time,
recognized as the very  first County Animal Response Team (CART) in
New York State.  To this day, it remains the only organization in
Nassau County, New York, that specifically  deals with emergency
management and disaster mitigation for animals.
