Synopsis: Perry CART dispatched to MVA to care for a non-injured dog involved in an accident where it's owners both went to an area hospital to be treated for injuries.
Description: Perry CART co-coordinator Al Houck received a phone call at 1412 hrs on 4-12-22 from Perry County 911 Center requesting Perry CART to respond to a MVA on SR 11-15 North in Buffalo Township, Liverpool, PA (Perry County). I responded, sat in traffic, attempted to call another PCART member from that area but was not available. I eventually I arrived at the Liverpool Vol Fire Company's headquarters at 1455 hours because the fire company departed the scene and took the dog to their station. At the fire station, I met with Ms Kay Whitmer, EMT from Liverpool EMS. She presented me with a young female gray and white Shih Tzu dog that was a passenger in the wrecked vehicle and was crated at the time of the accident. According to the EMT, the dog did not appear to be injured. I also assessed the dog and there were no apparent injuries. the dog, named "Sadie", was active and ready to go with me from the fire station without delay! I transported "Sadie" in her crate from the Liverpool FIre Station, directly to Kim's Comfy Kennel at 1744 Shermans Valley Road, Elliottsburg, PA. While in route wo the kennel, I called pastoral services at the Holy Spirit Hospital and advised them to make contact with Gary or Donna Wheeler (772-205-1848), who were just brought into that facility and are probably in the ER. Rev. Jeff Thoms called me as he was in the treatment room with Gary Wheeler (Sadie's" owner). I shared contact information for me and also for Kim Taylor, PCART member and owner of Kim's Comfy Kennel and told him that "Sadie" was ok and would be housed and cared for until someone could come and get the dog from the kennel. I arrived at the kennel at 1555 hours and care was turned over to Kim Taylor. Kim also did an assessment on "Sadie" and the contact information for Gary and Donna Wheeler was shared with her. Gary Wheeler "Sadie's" owner, called back while I as at the Kennel and he shared information for a friend that was coming from his hometown in Horseheads, NY to retrieve "Sadie" and the Wheeler's. Respecfully, Al Houck PCART

Synopsis: Requested assistance by State Police for 15 Rabbits.
Description: We were contacted by Lehigh County Humane Officer Saltzer who was with PA State Police Trooper Buccigrossi. Trooper Buccigrossi needed help in a seizure warrant. He was pulling 2 horses, 3 cats and 15 rabbits. He was able to find rescues to take the horses and cats but needed help in finding a place for the rabbits. Tory Schadler made way too many phones calls to rabbit rescues with no luck Friday night. Saturday morning we had offers from the 4H club and another two people who would be interested in helping. Tiffany Murphy contacted the CART and stated she would be able to take all 15 rabbits. We put her in contact with Trooper Buccigrossi. The rabbits were picked up along with very little food and only a few cages. Trish Burkhardt went into our storage and pulled a few more cages and purchase food for the rabbits. We will continue to offer help until the rabbits are released for adoption or to go back to owner.
