The P.E.I. chapter of the Canadian Disaster Animal Response Team (CDART) is holding a public information meeting on Saturday, March 17, in Charlottetown.

The meeting will be held at 10 a.m. at the Farm Centre on University Avenue.

CDART rescues pets and domestic livestock when owners are forced to evacuate due to factors such as floods, ice storms, fire or blizzards.

The organization has been taking care of animals for more than 15 years in Western Canada and is now in the process of starting a chapter in Atlantic Canada that will be headquartered in P.E.I.
