Print

The purpose of the Person County Animal Response Team (C.A.R.T.) is to respond and care for domestic animals during a large-scale emergency, including severe ice storms, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, wind-driven water, drought, fire, explosion, building collapse, commercial transportation accidents, chemical spills, or other situations either man-made or natural that may cause animal suffering. When an emergency directs persons to seek shelter where pets are not accepted, the team will attempt to provide care for those pets until people are allowed to return to their homes.
