The Citizen Animal Response Team Auxiliary (CART) is one of 50 nonprofit organizations chosen to participate in the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation’s 2024 Give Big Green Bay annual fundraising campaign.
CART was founded by former Howard Animal Control Humane Officer Monica Hoff in 2014 to organize and train local volunteers to support animal control by responding to domestic and wildlife calls and emergencies in the village on the evenings and weekends. The organization became an auxiliary and obtained nonprofit status in 2018.
Today, the sixteen CART Auxiliary members provide care for and transport injured and orphaned wildlife and injured and stray domestic animals for the village and all the municipalities that contract for Howard Animal Control services including Suamico, Pittsfield, Allouez, and Bellevue, as well other communities throughout the greater Green Bay area.
Hoff said the funds raised through the 24-hour Give Big Green Bay campaign will go toward the purchase of a new transport vehicle and help offset the costs of emergency medical treatment for the injured animals they are called to help.
“The members of CART respond to animal rescue calls 24 hours a day 365 days a year,” Hoff said. “Whether we’re called to assist with a lost dog or cat that needs to got to the shelter or an emergency vet or an injured wildlife animal in distress, we believe these animals deserve our help.”
