Ready to respond, Australia-wide.
Australia is regularly subjected to natural disasters in the form of bushfires, floods, droughts, and extreme weather conditions, which lead to considerable hardship in affected communities. These unfortunate events place a huge strain on resources to assist not only the human population – but also pets, livestock and wildlife.
Working with state and territory emergency response officials and our registered Partner Organisations, AVERT is a nationwide database ready to be activated following natural disasters or emergency animal disease (EAD) outbreaks in Australia.
Upon activation of AVERT, we contact the appropriately skilled (and located) individuals from our database to generate a shortlist of available volunteers ready to deploy. Due to the high-volume of requests and situation-specific needs of the emergency, it is not guaranteed that you will be contacted in each AVERT activation.
We ask that you keep your AVERT registration details up-to-date to ensure the efficient use of the database during an emergency.
