Quick Pickle Kit selects UC Davis Veterinary Emergency Response Team as Recipient

UC Davis VERT
QuickPickleKit.com believes in giving back. Each year, we select organizations that will receive 10% of sales from purchases on the QuickPickleKit.com website. We are proud to support the Veterinary Emergency Response Team (VERT) at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine by donating to provide medical supplies, transportation, medicine and food for displaced animals until they can be reunited with their families.

VERT is a volunteer group lead by faculty and staff with extensive experience in animal rescue and disaster medicine. Currently, VERT is out in the field gathering, triaging and caring for animals in the California Camp Fire and there is an Unclaimed Pets from the Camp fire Facebook page.

Andrea Wasko + Meaghan Gilbert, founders of QuickPickleKit.com, are members of the Estero Bay Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) for Los Osos, Morro Bay and Cayucos, California. “When we saw VERT in action and the animals that they were saving, we couldn’t fathom the magnitude of the challenges that they must be facing. As avid animal lovers, we wanted to do something to help”, states Gilbert and Wasko.

Quick Pickle Kit encourages other companies and individuals to support VERT. Thank you!

  1. Nov 20 VERT UPDATE: VERT has accepted a second mission number for the #Butte county fires and will now also be deployed to assist at the #RedCross co-housing #shelter for humans and their companion #animals. Both the Red Cross shelter and the large animal shelter (where we continuously have been working) are at the Butte county fairgrounds in #Gridley.

    #WashingtonPost article on their homepage Sunday, Nov 18th and in print, features the efforts of reuniting #cats with their owners.

    A team led by Dr. Michelle Hawkins has been at Butte Co. fairgrounds since Nov. 17 to assist with #poultry. There are currently hundreds of #birds there in need of monitoring and evaluation. She ran a team on Saturday, the 17th, to physically evaluate 70 birds with 2 people. They have been advised that all animals sheltering in place must be moved out of the #fire zone into shelters, etc before the rains predicted for this week.

    About 25 #raptors (ambassador birds and others at risk) were moved indoors at the #California Raptor Center due to extremely unhealthy air last Thursday. Story in today's #Dateline about how #UCDavis has reached out to help care for #pets and people affected by the #CampFire.
