What We Do:

Napa Community Animal Response Team (CART) works to ensure the best possible outcome for animals during emergencies or disasters. We educate about animal-related disaster preparedness, response, and recovery; assist emergency services in the sheltering, evacuation, and care of animals during a disaster; and train first responders, veterinary professionals, and volunteers in animal rescue and trauma care.

We are a volunteer-led, nonprofit organization that works in cooperation with local agencies to ensure the best possible outcome for animals in Napa County that need assistance during an emergency, accident, or disaster.

CART hosts training events annually to teach volunteers the skills for animal evacuations, care, sheltering, and more. The human-animal bond is strong and people are hesitant to leave their homes, even in the face of disaster, if they can’t ensure their animal’s safety. Napa CART’s goal is to provide support so people 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
  • Offer database assistance
  • Provide community outreach

Donations needed:

  • Animal crates and carriers
  • Animal feed buckets
  • 20 gallon water tubs
  • Wheelbarrows
  • Halters and lead ropes
  • Leashes
  • Tarps
  • Feed scoops


In an emergency, Napa CART is there. Highly trained members and volunteers, whose aim is to ensure the care and well-being of evacuated animals. provide peace of mind to owners.
