Synopsis: Somerset CART was activated for an injured dog lying along the road at Mount Davis.
Description: A person called 911 to report an injured dog ("black Yorkie") along the road on Mt Davis. It is a very remote area in Forbes State Forest. CART responded along with Elk Lick Township Police. In the meantime, other people who had a cabin in the area, picked up the dog along with another one that was nearby. The dogs are actually Schnauzers and their coats were in very poor condition. They were both severely matted with what appeared to be manure and wood shavings embedded in the mats. We determined that they did not appear to be injured, just not moving well, possibly due to the matts and they may have been caged. Neither Somerset County nor Cambria County Humane Societies would take the dogs because they are full. Susan contacted the PA Dog Warden for our county and obtained permission for a CART member to foster them until we can make other arrangements. We were asked to document their condition.

Synopsis: Somerset CART was requested to pick up an injured cat and transport it to the veterinarian.
Description: The caller found a cat in his yard that was either injured, very ill, or rabid. Police were called, but declined to do anything. Game Commission was called, but they don't deal with domestic animals. There is no ACO or Humane Officer for the county. CART was then contacted by dispatch to see if we could help. We went and got the cat and transported it to a vet for euthanasia and cremation. We will cover the bill. Recent donations have made it possible for us to do so on a limited basis.
