Delaware County Animal Response Team (DelCART) responds to disasters affecting household pets and livestock. We plan, set up, and run temporary evacuation shelters for animals and assist displaced pets and their people until safe to return home. We also promote pet emergency preparedness through community outreach.

Contact us if you’d like to join the team or have us come speak to your group. For general inquiries, email In an emergency, please dial 911.

DelCART meets every fourth Tuesday of the month at 7pm in the Vairo Library on the Penn State Brandywine campus. Please email for directions and parking instructions.
