The Disaster Animal Response Team of Nova Scotia  

                  A Registered Charity

The Disaster Animal Response Team of Nova Scotia is very excited to be participating in the Noggins Corner Farm Haunted House, The Curse of Mutiny Bay, with a portion of the proceeds going to support The Disaster Animal Response Team of Nova Scotia. This is a great day of fun for the entire family. The haunted house is open every weekend in October starting Saturday, October 7,  2017.                         

On the average, six Atlantic hurricanes occur each year. Hurricane season in Nova Scotia is from June 1, 2017 until November 30, 2017.

Knowing this, the Disaster Animal Response Team of Nova Scotia would like to share some information about what steps you can take to prepare your family in the event a Hurricane strikes.

Emergency preparedness starts with you.

Make sure your family has an emergency kit with enough supplies to sustain your family and pets for at least 72 hours. If you are unsure of what should be in your kit, a good resource is to contact your Canadian Red Cross, or visit

The Disaster Animal Response Team of Nova Scotia ( can provide you with an emergency planning checklist for your pets in case a disaster strikes or you are forced to evacuate.

Support our "Comfurt Kit" Program

When disaster strikes, and families are evacuated, some are forced to leave with only the clothes on their back. Just like our partners, the Canadian Red Cross, who supply Comfort Kits items, we supply "Comfurt Kits" that contain everything your will need for your cat or dog. At this time we have Large Dog, Small Dog and Cat " Comfurt Kits"

We also have a "Comfurt Kit Sponsorship program. For more details, please contact

HRM Criminal Record Check:

When applying for a Criminal Background Check, you may require a letter from DARTNS indicating that we are a Registered Charity.  Please contact if this is the case and we will send you a letter to take to the local Police or RCMP station. The HRM form can be used anywhere within HRM. To the best of our knowledge there is no charge for Criminal Background Check out side of HRM. Please let us know if for some reason this is not factual so that we can seek to create an agreement with that locale, as well be able to let other potential members know.
