    Hi Sarah! I just wanted to add that animal disasters also includes (or should include) cases of animal hoarders and puppy mills, not just our standard human-oriented definitions and images. This is a topic that will be covered at the HSUS National Conference on Animals in Disaster to be held in early June in Sacramento. The specific seminar description is this:

    Hoarders and Other Large Animal Collections as Disasters

    Hoarding situations, puppy mills, and other large collections of animals are disasters waiting to happen. This workshop will explore the tools you need to handle such disasters, including resource materials and checklists. Instructors will lead discussion and interaction on the topic and share information on how these situations should be treated as true disasters. Student participation is highly encouraged. The group will discuss questions and scenarios from a unique disaster perspective.

    Speakers: Colin Berry, MS, Director, The HSUS Innovations, Gaithersburg, Md.; Dave Pauli, Director, The HSUS Northwest Rockies Regional Office, Billings, Mont.
