County Animal Response Team to provide shelter and care for animals

Posted: Updated:
CAPE MAY COUNTY -

The County Animal Response Team will assist pet owners during an evacuation by providing shelter and care for the animals.

Run by the Cape May County Office of Emergency Management, CART includes emergency responders, animal care providers, shelter personnel, and other volunteers.

Gerald Thornton, Freeholder Director., Cape May Co. We found that people are very reluctant to leave if they have pets, and they can't take their pets with them or they can't move their pets to a safe environment even when we issue evacuation orders.

CART is expected to have the initial ability to provide shelter for 250 animals and as many as 500 animals in the future.
