Press Release Summary: FL-3 Airboat Search and Rescue announces Bark Ark

Press Release Body: Tampa, FL, August 04, 2008 -- The FL-3 Airboat Search and Rescue
team, in conjunction with the American Airboat Search and Rescue Association, is
proud to announce the launch of Bark Ark, an emergency pet and animal flood rescue

Based in Tampa, Florida, the Bark Ark is a specialized rescue program specifically
designed for the emergency rescue, evacuation of pets, animals and livestock in
flood-affected areas.

The mission of the Bark Ark project is to access, evacuate and relieve the
suffering of animals, pets and livestock stricken by flooding.

The Bark Ark project has been under development since Hurricane Katrina and the
devastating flooding of New Orleans. The recent flooding in the midwestern United
States re-enforced the need for a rapidly deployable animal rescue team and the Bark
Ark fulfills that need.

The Bark Ark team is available to state and federal agricultural and wildlife
agencies, national, state and local humane societies and veterinary organizations.

Upon request, the Bark Ark team can deploy within 24 hours, anywhere within the
United States, with specialized flood rescue watercraft that can rapidly access and
evacuated animals stranded by floodwater. In the event large numbers of domestic
animals are isolated by floodwaters, the Bark Ark team can deliver feed and
veterinary care to stranded animals. The Bark Ark team is also capable of herding
livestock from flooded land to high ground.

Pre-need agreements are encourage, but emergency response is available.

The Bark Ark is funded entirely by private donations. To learn more about the Bark
Ark and how to contribute visit the FL-3 Airboat SAR web site at: or call: 813-355-1103.
