Animal Investigation & Response

Animal Investigation and Response is a 501(c)(3) animal protection organization that assists law enforcement and communities with animal abuse related issues such as puppy mills, animal hoarding, blood sports and assists in disaster relief. Based in Texas, Animal Investigation and Response was formed by two certified animal cruelty investigators who saw a need to help connect individuals, law enforcement and animal control with strategies and resources to investigate as well as provide aid for situations that exceed the scope of a communities reach.

Mission: Animal Investigation and Response's mission is to connect law enforcement, animal control and individuals with strategies and resources to investigate and help build the strongest case against large scale animal abuse.

After 7 tornadoes plowed through east Texas on April 30, 2017, our team logged over 900 volunteer hours in caring for the approximately 100 displaced animals that filtered through the Canton Animal Shelter that May, including these two cuties. 🐈 We’re so glad our efforts all those years ago were able to help them move on to brighter futures!

It takes many planning hours, strong partnerships, dozens of volunteers, daily supplies, vehicles, veterinarians and technicians, medical supplies, and so much more to assist an agency to care for a large number of animals. ⛑️

We’re so grateful to all of our laser-focused AIR Responders for learning the necessary skills to defend animal dignity and help every animal we encounter! ❤️

You have asked for it and we are delivering! Don’t miss the next AIR Responder Orientation scheduled for March 1, 2020 at 10am at Humane Tomorrow’s soon-to-be-unveiled headquarters in Argyle!

As AIR Responders, we work to provide relief and safety to animals in danger and in need of our help from large scale cruelty or disaster situations. We also provide veterinary support and networking assistance for displaced animals in the community after a natural disaster, aiming to reunite individuals with their lost animals. When the situation gets tough, AIR gets tougher. 💪

Lady and the Tramp, but with bunnies and greens. 😍

“Whenever you are engaged in work that serves humanity and is for the building of humanity, it has dignity, and it has worth” -Martin Luther King Jr.

As our AIR Transport Team is tucked in for the evening, resting up for the trip back home tomorrow, they reflect back on the role they played in getting the sweet little group of terriers to their happy beginnings.

AIR was created to be of service to others, to give animals better opportunities and to give them futures to look forward to, that put them in a position to thrive! This trip was a long haul but every mile (1588 miles) was worth it for their brighter futures.

Thank you to everyone that contributed to the Terrier Express (via AIR Response Unit). You make it possible for us to serve the ones that need it the most! Many thanks to our AIR Transport Team, Bexar County Animal Facility, Wayside Waifs and HSUS!

We LOVE seeing the changes that happen to each animal we rescue: their eyes brighten 🐶, their coat thickens 🐕, and you can see the tension leave their furry bodies 🐱 once they know they’re in good hands. Like Ace here who was one of the ‘Fab 5’ from our large-scale rescue back in May who found his fur-ever home in Iowa.

Seeing these differences when we look back on photos is a sure-fire way to remind us of why we do what we do. Help us continue to brighten the eyes of even more animals by contributing to our holiday campaign to raise funds for next year’s missions.

The Royal House (school of horsemanship) held their annual fundraiser last weekend and this year they selected Animal Investigation & Response as one of their beneficiaries. ❤️ The students and parents sold baked items, hot chocolate, holiday items, t-shirts and raffle tickets for fun prizes. Students also assisted with horse rides, an obstacle course, hay rides and face painting.

All the young people involved with Dominique Miller's amazing riding school learn compassion and care for the wide variety of rescue animals (including horses, goats, dogs, cats, ducks, chickens, bunnies and even bees) at The Royal House and community service is also instilled in their instruction. The annual fundraiser is a highlight of the year for all of them and we certainly appreciate them including us again this year! 🐾

Members of Animal Investigation & Response spent this week attending the National Alliance of State Animal and Agricultural Emergency Programs in Seattle WA! 👏 This conference is based on developing guidelines and trainings to help community emergency response programs successfully incorporate animal response into existing framework. Because our work in disaster relief is such a huge part of our mission, we're always striving to learn how to create even better outcomes for all animals, their owners, and the community the next time disaster strikes. ❤️

Our Responders have to be prepared for ANYTHING at ANY TIME. We could get called in in 30 degree weather or 100 degree weather. There could be so much feces and urine on the ground that we are unable to enter a building without hazmat suits. An animal could be severely malnourished, completely blind, or severely injured. We have to have supplies to combat any conditions in any situation.

That’s why we need your help. Your donations go directly to the rescue supplies, medical supplies, daily animal needs and volunteer necessities that we use to care for the animals we’re tasked with rescuing.

This year for #GivingTuesday, we’re asking each of you to please consider donating $25 to help us save more animals in 2020 than ever before. The little things, like sterile gloves, treats, food bowls, and cat litter all begin to add up during a large-scale mission, like the one we completed in Denton this May.

Your donation could provide any number of live-saving supplies and cover expenses that are necessary to our response efforts. Let kindness fill the AIR this holiday season and help us help them. 🐶🐱

This Thanksgiving, we have a LOT of things to be thankful for.

We’re thankful to our responders and rescue partners. And we’re so thankful that we were able to save so many animals this year. 🐾 Every contribution to our holiday campaign increases our ability to save even more animals next year and we’re so incredibly thankful to all of you who have donated and continue to donate.

$10 from 1,000 supporters, $100 from 100 supporters, no matter how much you give it all equals more resources for our furry friends. Just one donation of $20 can provide food bowls for 5 animals, or 200 pairs of gloves to help with cleanup. All the little things can add up quickly, which is why we’re asking you to consider giving a gift to our cause today.

AIR stands for Animal Investigation and Response, meaning not only do we advocate for animals, we also take action. As the only mobile Emergency Disaster Response Team in the state of Texas for small and domestic animals, we’ve been able to provide a positive outcome to nearly 3000 animals since our inception in 2015. This year in particular has been monumental for both us and the animals we’ve been able to assist.

We want to continue this upward trajectory into 2020, but to do that, we need your help. Please donate today to help us secure funds for next year’s rescue missions so that we can keep doing what we do best: improving the lives of animals one rescue mission at a time.

📆 A year ago AIR responders assisted with a suspected hoarding case at the request of San Marcos Regional Animal Shelter. The animals were found to be living in substandard conditions and in need of medical care. 🚑 AIR responders set up a temporary emergency shelter and for several weeks provided needed medical attention and daily care for the seized animals.

Morris was one over 150 cats rescued and cared for as part of AIR’s deployment. This weekend we had the opportunity to visit with Morris in his adopted home. 🐱 We are thrilled to report that Morris is King of the Castle and has wrapped his human family around his paw. ❤️

Morris’s Happy Beginning is because of our volunteer responders, generous donors and dedicated supporters. Thank you to all who helped make this possible. 🐾

Members of Animal Investigation and Response are currently at the annual Texas Animal Control Association Training Conference in South Padre Island! We think it’s so important to ensure our Animal Control Officers are up-to-date on everything from animal welfare laws to ensuring their agencies are prepared for man made and natural disasters.

This conference offers a phenomenal training opportunity that provides ACOs with the tools to better perform their daily duties. Because we work with Law Enforcement and Animal Control on a regular basis, we love being able to get involved in events like this!
