The ACART mission is to provide emergency assistance to Amador County residents and their domestic animals by providing animal shelter and care for those animals when their owners are forced to evacuate their homes as a result of a declared disaster, and to educate the public on disaster preparedness.

​Although ACART operates under the direction of the County Office of Emergency Services and the County Animal Control Director, we are not funded as part of the county budget and remain a completely volunteer organization dependent on small grants and the generosity of concerned citizens.

ACART members continue to hone their animal handling skills through monthly training sessions and participation in County organized disaster drills. ACART also cooperates in joint exercises with neighboring counties and performs education outreach to educate the public on preparation for evacuation.

ACART will soon be able to serve the community more effectively. Two new 8' by 20' cargo trailers are scheduled for delivery to us on July 23. The new trailers will be used to house and transport the equipment and supplies we need to operate emergency shelters. One will carry materials for small animal sheltering, the other for horses and livestock. They are being purchased with funds contributed by individuals, businesses and civic organizations of Amador County. They will replace a loaned horse trailer that has served in the past but is now stretched to the limit. The new trailers will be placed into service as soon as we have completed outfitting them for safe storage and transport.

Our thanks to all those whose donations made this possible, and to Kathryn Barstow for her generous loan of her horse trailer.

UPDATE:  The trailers have arrived at The Trailer Specialist in Galt.  ACART will take formal possession of the trailers some time the week of August 8, after which the work of outfitting them for service will begin.
We are sorry to announce that the Pig Roast

Please keep us in mind for next year
