Colorado Floods: American Humane Association's Red Star™ Rescue Team Mobilizes To Help Animal Victims

Charity offers tips on keeping families, children and pets safe from floods

WASHINGTON, Sept. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As residents flee the dangerous flooding in Colorado, American Humane Association has mobilized its famed Red Star™ rescue team and is working to help the animal victims of the disaster.

Through the generous support of Mars Petcare US, makers of PEDIGREE® Food for Dogs and WHISKAS® Food for Cats, American Humane Association, which has a nearly century-long legacy of animal relief, is reaching out with critical help by providing rescue and support services.

As part of a coordinated response to the flooding, Red Star was invited by Boulder County Animal Control to deploy as an approved responder to assist pets in need and to help provide emergency rescue operations.  Among the many responders working feverishly to help those in need, including the innocent animal victims, Red Star is on the scene working with Boulder County Animal Control and Code 3 Associates.

"Floods are among the most terrifying and destructive of natural disasters," said Dr. Robin Ganzert, president and CEO of American Humane Association. "Fortunately, our Red Star team is well-trained and well-qualified to handle this kind of emergency so that we may save lives and reunite families."

"Mars Petcare is proud to be helping by supporting the legendary Red Star rescue team," said Debra Fair, vice president of corporate affairs for Mars Petcare NA. "We're working closely with American Humane Association to provide critical help where and when it is needed most."

"Advance members of our team are already on the ground," said Justin L. Scally, national director of emergency services at American Humane Association. "Our Red Star staff and volunteers will be working  closely with local authorities and other agencies including Boulder County Animal Control and Code 3 Associates, as well as other local volunteers, shelters and humane societies to find, rescue, shelter and make sure animals separated from their families get home safely."
