Napa Community Animal Response Team

Napa Community Animal Response Team

What We Do:

Our mission is to: 1) educate the public on disaster preparedness, response and recovery for their animals; 2) assist emergency services in sheltering, evacuating and caring for animals during a disaster; and 3) train first responders, veterinary professionals and community volunteers in animal rescue and trauma care.

We are a volunteer-led, non-profit organization that works in cooperation with local agencies to ensure the best possible outcome for animals in Napa County who need assistance during an emergency, accident or disaster. We host about 10 training events annually, where we teach our volunteers the skills for animal evacuations, care, sheltering and more. The human-animal bond is strong, so people are often hesitant to leave their homes, even in the face of disaster, if they can’t ensure their animal’s safety. Our goal is to provide the support people need so they can evacuate themselves and we can assist with their animal needs.

Other Ways to Help:

Volunteer opportunities:

  • Train to become a member of Napa CART’s response team
  • Assist with our database
  • Provide community outreach


  • Animal crates and carriers
  • Feed buckets
  • Muck tubs
  • Pitchforks
  • Wheelbarrows
  • Halters and lead ropes
  • Leashes
  • Tarps Feed scoops


As both a volunteer and a person with animals, I’m incredibly grateful to Napa CART for the education and hands-on support that helps make disasters survivable for animals and their people.
