NASCAR Star Tony Stewart Helps Animal Rescue Responders

StewartWhen natural or man-made disaster strikes, the trained animal rescue responders from Code 3 Associates are in a race against time to help our four-legged friends in need. Steering attention to their paws cause, three-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Tony Stewart is the 2014 spokesperson for the compassionate non-profit organization.

Named an honorary lifetime member of Code 3 Associates, the renowned race car driver recently made a pit stop in front of the camera to encourage other animal lovers to show support for their life-saving mission by signing up to become a Code 3 member for free.

Created in 1985 and established as a non-profit in 1998, Code 3 Associates offers animal disaster response and resources to communities touched by catastrophe, and instruction for individuals with a passion for compassion and those in the fields of emergency response and animal-related law enforcement.
