Our commitment

Animals, like humans, have a right to rescue in disaster situations. Close cooperation with official and other charitable aid organizations is very important to us.

We not only pay attention to good cooperation in the event of damage, but also actively conduct synergy discussions in order to be able to help people and animals quickly and effectively.

Who can report disasters?

Since this is an ideal task force, anyone can start a request in major disaster situations.

Of course, we welcome reports from authorities and professional organizations with technical details about the situation.

But also animal protection associations and private individuals can also contact us directly about damage situations.


Join as animal rescue service?

We are always looking for new professional animal rescue services for the animal rescue task force and motivated people to support the existing rescue services. Particular importance is attached to uniform training according to the standard of the Federal Association of German Animal Rescue Services (GDT) under veterinary supervision. Because professional animal rescue is only possible if all units speak the same language.

The GDT regularly provides all the necessary seminars to set up a professional animal rescue service. Just write to us. We would be happy to send you further information.
