Event Details

Formed in 2018, following the devastating Edgecumbe flood the year prior that saw over 1,000 animals left behind in need of rescue, Animal Evac New Zealand (Kararehe Whakawatea) is a charity comprised volunteers throughout New Zealand who can assist emergency services and civil defence with the evacuation of animals, and to provide initial temporary sheltering in an emergency or disaster. Though there is a primary focus on companion animals, Animal Evac works to advocate for all animals that are vulnerable or affected by disasters. So that no animal is left behind.

Following highly successful TV coverage of our charity launch, we are now rolling our our foundation training courses throughout New Zealand. This is the first step in joining Animal Evac. 

  • Overview of Animal Evac NZ: What we are and are not
  • Animal Evac Vision, Values and Code of Conduct
  • Animal emergency management philosophy
  • Civil Defence Emergency Management in NZ overview
  • Welfare services in an emergency
  • Temporary emergency animal accommodation options
  • Animal evacuation registration (database) and reunification
  • Animal Evac NZ activation and command
  • Future training options and requirements
  • Health and safety

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Yes. Please ensure you bring your ticket so we can account for who attended the training and ensure payment.

Can I bring my pet?

No. Our courses are pet free to ensure you are focused on the learning and not distracted. If you have a disability assistance dog, they are most welcome to accompany you. 

I am automatically a responder for Animal Evac after the course?

In most cases, you will be flagged as meeting our minimum requirements and added to our database. However, you may be required to undertake additional training dependent on your role. In some cases, you may already hold required qualifications, and once we have confirmation of those we can update your status. Many of our roles also require you to pass a police vetting process. 

I am wanting a non operational role? Do I still need to take this course?

Yes. This is a mandatory induction for all our volunteers.

Is there any animal handling at this course?

No. This course is entirely classroom based, with lectures, discussions and group activities that accommodate a wide range of people and abilities. 

Are there food stores or cafe's closeby?

Yes, we have ensured shops to purchase food are within walking distance. However, if you have special dietary requirements, you are welcome to bring your own lunch too. Tea and coffee will be supplied.

What should I bring?

We suggest you bring pen/paper and glasses/contact lenses if you need these for viewing television or whiteboards. Please dress to be comfortable. You may need money for food and parking.
