What Is Noah’s Wish?
Noah’s Wish came into existence in 2002, not to duplicate existing efforts to help animals during disasters, but to expand on what was already in place. Too often, efforts to help animals during emergency situations have been gravely inadequate. We recognize that animals need and deserve an organized, consistent and professionally managed national disaster relief program. How animals are managed during disasters is to implement well thought out, field tested policies and procedures that are practiced in all disasters. Relief efforts for people are managed this way and we feel they should be for animals too.
We are not involved in any other animal welfare issues. It’s not that we aren’t concerned about all the ways animals are abused or exploited, but there are a multitude of national and local animal welfare organizations who are tackling the issues that adversely affect animals.
The mission of Noah’s Wish is to better prepare individuals and communities for emergencies, and to mitigate the impact of such events on both people and animals.
The vision of Noah’s Wish is to provide for the needs of animals in disasters. This will be accomplished by:
- Planning and preparing with emergency management and animal services agencies.
- Mitigating the impact of disasters on animals through our educational and community outreach programs.
What Makes Us Unique?
- Noah’s Wish is a not-for-profit, animal welfare organization with a singular, straightforward mission – we exist to keep animals alive during disasters. That’s it.
- We offer training to prepare people and communities to be self-sufficient should an emergency occur.
