Chittenden County DART to Host Mandatory EAS Training

VDART requires all of its volunteers to take an Emergency Animal Sheltering (EAS) workshop before responding, which we provide free of charge in various parts of the state. On Sunday, May 21 st , the CCDART will be hosting an EAS at the South Burlington Police Department. More details will follow and you can also check our Facebook page and website for updates.

CCDART is also looking for new leadership for the board of directors, so if you live in the area and have an interest in taking on a greater role with this regional team, contact VDART Board Chair Joanne Bourbeau at

Sunday, October 30th – 10 am – 3 pm – Training Matters, West Brattleboro

WinDART is organizing this free workshop (which is a pre-requisite for VDART volunteer responders) for new and interested members. Among the topics we’ll cover are small animal behavior and handling (dogs and cats) and our emergency shelter set-up protocols. The training will culminate with a mock shelter set-up exercise that will allow us to practice these skills in a real-life setting, using the app being developed by DART Command Central.
