Want to do something that saves lives, feels good and helps your community? Then volunteer to help animals when disasters strike in California!

Thousands of animals need care during and after disasters. Some 63% of California households have pets, including an estimated 10 million pet cats, nine million dogs, and one million horses. Other pets, farm animals, and wildlife also need assistance during and after disasters like earthquakes, floods, and wildfires.

Veterinary professionals are vital to animals during disasters. The mission of the California Veterinary Medical Reserve Corps (CAVMRC) is to provide veterinary professionals with the training and credentialing necessary to support animal health and public health.

Deployment is always voluntary. Volunteers get involved at whatever level works for them – assistants are needed as well as leaders, part- time responders are as welcome as those who can help out for a week or two, plus there are ongoing roles in areas such as planning and disaster response. Volunteer participation can be a matter of life or death for rescued animals and means the world to the owners of those animals.

Benefits of joining the CAVMRC

The CAVMRC provides veterinary professionals:

Credentialing necessary to support animal health and public health emergency response.

Continuing education and training opportunities that allow you to strengthen your skills to better serve your practice, your community and our state.
Networking and information sharing opportunities with veterinary team members across the state.

Who can join the CAVMRC?

You don’t need any prior disaster response experience or training to join the CAVMRC. The entire veterinary practice team is welcome, including:

  • Veterinarians
  • Registered veterinary technicians
  • Veterinary assistants, office managers and all support staff members
  • Students in veterinary medical programs
  • Retired veterinary professionals with a current license

Program Affiliation

The CVMA registered the CAVMRC as a unit of the Medical Reserve Corps under the California Emergency Medical Services Agency and works in cooperation with local, statewide, and national agencies. The CVMA has played an important role in preparing for and responding to disasters in California since 1994 and builds on this experience with this new affiliation.
