Animal Investigation & Response (AIR) will be holding their Responder Orientation for current and new Volunteer Responders. This orientation is a requirement for all future Responders to be called upon to assist AIR with animal emergencies in the state of Texas.

This orientation will cover the services Animal Investigation & Response offers to other agencies in the event of animal emergencies such as; puppy mills, hoarding, dog and cock fighting or natural disasters. You will learn how you can assist with emergency situations and the necessary requirements to be deployed to a natural disaster area. You will also learn how you can expand your knowledge and skill level to specialize in Animal Search & Rescue, Flood Water Rescue, Swift Water Rescue, Technical Large Animal Rescue and other specialized areas of animal Response.
