Mission: The Colorado Veterinary Medical Reserve Corps (CO VMRC) program provides veterinary professionals and animal emergency responders with the training and credentialing necessary to support animal health and public health emergency response.
Since 2012, our Director, Char Gonsenica, has been the unit coordinator for the CO-VMRC-West which serves the west half of the state. (This was formerly the Colorado State Animal Response Team.) We have many volunteers who deploy to natural disasters like fires and floods, and we also help law enforcement with large animal cruelty cases. To become a volunteer please contact Char at 970-280-5738 or email use via our Contact Page form.
Sarah Heckathorn is our East Unit Coordinator, you can contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
