Thankful for the ability to complete our mission

CMDART is grateful for private donors who have helped us “feed the pig”, as we call it. As many of you know, our little “feed the pig” program, seen at many of our events, is literally asking for private donations in a piggy bank, that helps us pay for our equipment storage lockers and storage supplies, bookkeeping and accounting fees, office supplies, registration of our response trailers, website management and other basic operating expenses. As you can imagine, most grantors are funding causes for more severe human needs right now that pushes pet organizations, in general, to the bottom of the pile.

CMDART works in cooperation with local emergency management, local animal control officers and public health departments and aids municipalities which seek to comply with the Pets Evacuation and Transportation Standards Act (PETS ACT). This law, established in October 2006, require a local and state emergency preparedness authorities to include household pets and service animals in their evacuation plans. Animals affected by disasters can include small and large animals such as pets livestock and exotics.
