Technical Large Animal Emergency Rescue (TLAER) training – May 2013


The TLAER Operations training in Hamptonville, NC, at Dusty Horses Farm, was very successful! Emergency responders, volunteers, veterinarians and vet techs were trained to respond to large animal emergencies of all types. The training was coordinated by PEART (Piedmont Emergency Animal Response Team), hosted by H.E.R.O. and partially funded by a generous grant from The Winston-Salem Foundation.


Brent Campbell of Fox 8 visited the training site and caught up with a few trainees. Take a look at Fox 8’s coverage of the training.

 Pictures were taken throughout the training and posted to PEART’s Facebook page. Take a look at some of those dramatic pictures….
