I started with FL SARC (Florida State Animal Response Coalition, Inc) by taking a course on emergency animal sheltering. I thought I would learn more about pets so I took the training. What I learned is how animals/pets matter and that we must prepare to respond in an emergency.
They truly care about pets. The are a model organization that other states are learning from.
Great place to donate funds and to volunteer to help.
