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 16 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 (Suamico, Pittsfield, Allouez, and Bellevue), as well other communities throughout the greater Green Bay area.
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 online fundraiser launches at noon on Feb. 21 and runs through noon on Feb. 22. During that time, supporters can donate and help raise funds through the CART Auxiliary Give Big Green Bay profile page.
