Established in 2001, the P.E.T began working with Search & Rescue of Deschutes Co. and the pet team in LaPine (created by Dan & Brenda Bensmiller). Later, due to illness, the Bensmillers donated their equipment to the Redmond-based team.
P.E.T is a role model for other communities in the State. P.E.T provides continuing information & expertise to other groups and agencies. P.E.T. is recognized as a respected animal rescue group through the State Police/Governor's preparedness website.
A 501 c 3, non-profit animal rescue organization
Today, P.E.T works under the direction of Red Cross and Emergency services during Central Oregon evacuations. The regional coordinator is part of the incident command team. There are over 124 volunteer & resource P.E.T members. P.E.T has assisted with over 14 local wildfire evacuations, the Prineville flood, assisted after hurricane Katrina and provides community assistance in individual cases. The Pet Evacuation Team also offers community presentations for disaster preparedness, in-house training opportunities and training to other agencies.
Donations are needed to rebuild the equipment inventory. A wish & needs list is included on our website.
