CEO Patrick Marshall says SERVICE above self is the driving force behind all ofCAMP ANIMAL operational activity. Operated by theSBR FOUNDATION,a 501[c] tax exempt national nonprofit, our actions are characterized by the unwavering pursuit to prevent or alleviatehuman and animalsuffering. From our military veterans to our first responders to our veterinarians to a goal of over 100,000 national volunteers, we help people on their worst day restore their lives – and dignity.
Deadly disasters like Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma and the California wildfires vividly demonstrate why we need to unify human and animal life saving rescue, triage and longer term support efforts in vulnerable and at-risk populationsUNDER ONE, FREE, but well-funded and well organized nonprofit operation.
On paper, Camp Animal is an international non-government organization. Camp Animal is also a military veteran service organization that uses disaster response in saving humans and animals to help reintegrate combat and all veterans, back into civilian life. By pairing the skills and experiences of military veterans with first responders, veterinarian medical professionals, volunteers coupled with state of the art technology, Camp Animal aims to provide the greatest service and impact possible.
Operationally, Camp Animal will rapidly deploy emergency Quick Reaction Forces [QRF] to disaster zones around the world. From there and based upon multiple disaster assessment factors, we’ll establish an expandable, full service and self-contained base camp along with forward operating base[s] [FOB]

Through continued service, Camp Animal seeks to provide our veterans with three things they lose after leaving the military: 1] a purpose, gained through animal disaster relief; 2] community, built by serving with others; and 3] identity, from recognizing the impact one individual can make.
Did you know that if you were being evacuated from a disaster scene with your cat in a carrier or dog on a leash and tried to check-into 99.9% of government evac centers, you would be turned away because they don’t accept animals?.
NOT AT MILITARY VETERAN LED AND SUPPORTED CAMP ANIMAL. FREE extended housing for humans and pets will be available.
Did you know that it’s a common practice during disasters for city/county animal shelters to clean out their cages of found/lost animals at Day 31; many times, sending those animals to other states like Texas. A bad practice that greatly lessens the chance that those animals will ever be reunited with their owners back at the disaster ground zero?
