How we Train

As an ACART volunteer you will have the opportunity to train in small and large animal care and handling, incident management, basic first responder duties, and disaster shelter management. You will also join us in our community outreach and disaster preparedness education, as we team up with local community partners to provide preparedness education for owners and their animals.

While animal handling and active shelter operations require some minimum level of physical ability, there are other activities that have few or no restrictions. Some of the above trainings are mandatory to participate in animal handling during a disaster.

Become a Volunteer Today!

If you like learning and take pride in knowing you are helping your community at the time of a disaster, come check us out at one of our monthly meetings. 

It is important to know you must also enjoy taking care of small or large animals and don’t mind getting a little dirty!
