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.

Important!!
Please be aware that ACART is not permitted by the County to RESCUE animals.  We are able to provide emergency sheltering and care only.  It is your responsibility as an animal owner to get your animals to us.  If you are unable to self-evacuate, call 911 or Animal Control (209-223-6378).  You should also keep in mind that, in emergencies, the capacity of those organizations to help you is likely to be limited.
Remember: Your animals are your responsibility.
