Beaufort County Animal Services is looking for community members to volunteer to be part of their CART (County Animal Response Team). Interested volunteers can attend a two-day training free of charge on how to respond and care for animals in the event of a disaster or other emergency.

The training will be a hybrid mix of Zoom and on location at the Burton Wells Recreation Center, 1 Middleton Recreation Drive, Burton (map), Wednesday, July 27, and Thursday, July 28, from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m.

Topics will include federal and state disaster plans, climate change and the impact on animals, hurricanes, floods, slack water rescue, the role and history of CART, table-top exercises, and more. Dr. Green will lead the workshops from Critters at Risk.
