Who to call in an animal-related emergency

If you follow just about any animal shelter on Facebook, you've probably seen more than one post that says, "We are not animal control!" Shelters take animals in--they don't, and likely can't, go out and pick up animals found wandering. So who do you call? Well, the Westmoreland and Fayette County Animal Response Team (CART) has made a handy chart breaking down who handles what, helping you determine who to contact in any situation from wounded wild animals to incidents of animal abuse.

Save it to your phone, print it out and stick it on your fridge, whatever. Actual contact information should be forthcoming--the organizations are still working on putting together a comprehensive list.
