The Canadian Disaster Animal Response Team (CDART) is the emergency animal rescue division of Critteraid.

CDART volunteers respond in times of disaster and emergencies when domestic animals are in need of rescue and sheltering.

Volunteers are mobilized when local authorities request CDART's help and when the Provincial Emergency Program's Emergency Social Services is activated.  In specific communities, CDART has long-time established teams but will answer requests for help through local, provincial and federal government agencies.

CDART is 100% volunteer based and 100% of our funding comes from donations.

Critteraid is a not-for-profit society and registered charity listed as The Summerland Cat Sanctuary based in Summerland, BC, Canada. You can learn about Critteraid at www.critteraid.org
