AUGUSTA, Kan. (KWCH) - The Butler County Animal Response Team responds to disasters and sets up emergency animal shelters for displaced pets.

The team says when as you’re preparing for this season’s severe weather, be sure to have a go-bag for your pet as well.

“We like to keep a go-bag for our pets as well as ourselves. This (sic) is some of the things we keep in it. Keep your own dog food in there, water separately. Treats, water bowls to go. Anything that you think that you might need to make your pet comfortable,” said volunteer Chris Barth.

The team is run solely by volunteers trained in water, ice, high/low angle rescues and animal decontamination. It is funded by grants and donations. This weekend, the community has the opportunity to help out.

The team will hold a dog washing fundraiser at the Emergency Management Center in Augusta on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Donations will help purchase items for the team’s new trailer. You can also get your dog microchipped for $20.
