Some of our success stories!


Nala…[is] doing great in…[her] new home! Nala is so energetic and playful and loooooves to snuggle. She’s really, really sweet with my two sons who are eight and four..

Thanks again for your help and for taking such good care of our girl Nala!


Candy- now renamed Ohno- is doing great! She’s the sweetest, happiest, cuddliest cat and so much fun. We’re working on helping our dog adjust to a cat with a professional trainer (she’s VERY excited about Ohno) and it’s going well. We love Ohno so much and are so happy she’s part of our family!


Charlie is now Petey. We love him. He is a crazy man who is affectionate and loves to play hard.

how you can help

CART is always looking for volunteer drivers, whether using their own vehicle or one provided by one of CART’s partners.  A good driving record is a must, and drivers must qualify to be added to a group auto insurance policy if using a provided transport van.

Currently, CART transports run from Central Arkansas to Kansas City as well as multiple locations in Missouri, Illinois and Minnesota.  More routes will be added soon!.

CART offers a small gas stipend and per diem to cover driver travel expenses.  All travel expenses for animals are paid.
