AKC Pet Disaster Relief
If a potentially catastrophic storm is approaching or there is a hazmat emergency, pet owners will be asked to leave their homes with little or no notice. Split-second decisions are made on what is most important to take with them: maybe their photos, but definitely their family and pets. What plans are in place to accommodate our pets in these situations?
Or without warning, a tornado, earthquake or explosion happens and animals seen wandering and lost after disasters are not strays or abandoned, they are our pets. They are lost, scared, possibly injured and in need of help. What will happen to our displaced animal companions?
Thankfully, regardless of the size or budget of a community, laws now require our local municipalities to prepare and care for its citizens and their pets in the event of a disaster. AKC Pet Disaster Relief can help our local Emergency Management be prepared.
