HAVING THE RIGHT PLAN IN PLACE
After the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, local Emergency Management teams are now required by Federal Law to have readiness plans and resources available to help citizens and their pets in the event of a disaster.
AKC Pet Disaster Relief helps local Emergency Management provide animal care services immediately following a disaster. Once donated, AKC Pet Disaster Relief equipment will become the property of the municipality to deploy whenever a disaster is declared. They will assume insurance requirements, as well as proper storage and maintenance of the trailer and its contents.
