Introducing Texas A&M's custom-built, ready-for-anything medical disaster response truck, sponsored by the Banfield Foundation

Built to Weather the Storm

With a Banfield Foundation sponsorship, the Texas A&M Veterinary Emergency Team designed a mobile response unit from the ground up. They completely customized a Ford® F-650 to create the ultimate vehicle for veterinary medical disaster response. With this truck, the team can drive through all kinds of weather conditions and serve the most vulnerable pets better than ever before.
