Synopsis: CART was requested to evacuate animals in danger due to rising floodwaters.
Description: Somerset County experienced severe flooding April 2 and 3. A woman called 911 to report animals that had been abandoned along the Casselman River. The river was rising and she was concerned the animals would be swept away. CART responded with PSP and later the HPO arrived. There was a horse and goat in a pen, 3 dogs tied to a camper and chickens and ducks that were loose. They were close to the river and it was determined they had to be evacuated. We evacuated the horse, goat and dogs, but were unable to get the chickens and ducks. We discovered that the owners had been evicted from the property and they left the animals behind. The HPO is investigating and plans to press charges. Neighbors offered temporary foster care for some of the animals and the horse was transported to the Humane Society. We are hoping that they can be signed over since they were technically abandoned.

Synopsis: CART was requested by PD to assist with an aggressive dog that had bitten its owner
Description: Person called 911 for assistance with their dog who had bitten one of the family members. Somerset Borough Police responded. The owners believed that the dog had bitten because it was sick and they needed help getting it into their car ro take it to a vet. Police didn't feel they had the expertise to handle the dog, so requested CART assistance. We responded with a crate and necessary tools. It was determined that the family did not have a relationship with a local vet for the dog to be seen on an emergency basis. They asked that we get the dog in the crate so that their children would be safe and they would take it to the vet the next morning. Our members got the dog in the crate and will pick up the crate in a few days.
