The AVMA Web site now includes recently updated and comprehensive information about the Veterinary Medical Assistance Teams.

Fact sheets, articles, and links related to the disaster assistance program are now available at www.avma.org/vmat. The VMAT section of the AVMA Web site also explains that the program is provided to states through funding from the American Veterinary Medical Foundation.

AVMA VMATs are called on by states to serve as first responders for animals during emergencies, and they help states prepare for emergencies involving animals.
