SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE

Some people are the kind to rappel down a cliff and some are the kind to help set up a rescue operation while some are happy setting up snacks to fuel the front line rescue teams. Whatever your interest, we have something suited to your unique talents.

TECHNICAL RESCUE

As the heart of our response team, the Technical Rescue Team trains with ropes and rescue gear to save companion animals and livestock. Dogs, horses, cows, pigs, llamas, and more get in to situations they need help out of. This team is physically the most challenging, but can also be immeasurably rewarding.

WASART's focus on training means you don't need previous training or experience, but we do ask you to have a great attitude and be focused on safety. A TRT member often relies on his or her teammates to keep them safe in dangerous situations and at the end of the day, safety is our priority.

BASE TEAM

Strapping on a harness and learning ropes is not everyone's deal, but you can still provide necessary leadership or back up on the site of a rescue. Instead, you can provide an invaluable service helping transport equipment, haul on rope lines, making sure everyone is hydrated, managing radios, or checking the site for trailer access.

The Base Team does not require the more technical skills of the technical team. With a few classes, vaccinations, you can be on the ground helping save lives too.

OTHER TEAMS

There is a lot of work that gets done in the background. We always need help on committees such as outreach, training, fundraising, hospitality, merchandising, finance, and equipment management.
