The Texas A&M Veterinary Emergency Team, also known as VET, unveiled a 28-foot trailer on Tuesday. It will be used to evacuate small animals before emergencies like hurricanes. The trailer is a donation from the Banfield Foundation, a nonprofit that funds programs that enable veterinary care, among other tasks. In July, VET will receive the final part of the donation -- a Ford F750 truck to pull the trailer. The vehicle is equipped to transport 44 small animals to safety during the evacuation phase of emergency events. VET designed the trailer and the Banfield Foundation provided about $135,000 to pay for it and the truck.
