How You Can Help

As those of you with a passion for animal welfare look for ways to apply your skills, we want to thank you for considering the CAPITOL AREA ANIMAL RESPONSE TEAM. As you know, animals depend on their human companions for health and safety but in a time of crisis this need is often left unmet. We appreciate your interest in joining us to help provide valuable crisis response services to animals and their human companions.

To learn more about volunteer opportunities with the Capitol Area Animal Response Team, please email, or call (785) 925-3678.


CAART always is in need of dog food, cat food, flea & tick products, and other supplies. Please see our wish list page for a complete list.


  1. Generate donations to CAART through iGive: An easy and fun way to generate funds for CAART is to use Just go to the iGive website, type "CAART" in the keyword search field, and click the "Find Causes" button. When CAART comes up, click it. You'll see a short description of the organization, and a "Select this cause!" button. Once you sign up, you'll generate a donation for every search or purchase you make at any of the 700+ companies participating in the iGive program.
  2. Donate online through the Topeka Community Foundation website. Just select "Capitol Area Animal Response Team Fund" from the drop-down menu, fill out the rest of the form, and click "submit." It's that easy!
  3. Donate the old-fashioned way. Of course, you can mail your tax-deductable donations to:

c/o Topeka Community Foundation
5431 SW 29th Street, Suite 300
Topeka, KS 66614

CAART has 501(c)3 status through the Topeka Community Foundation, so your donations are tax deductable (check with your tax preparer for details).

Dogs aren't the only animals CAART saves. Here sea gulls and a cat, as well as dogs, receive emergency services.
