Furry Friendly - No One Left Behind
It's THAT time of of year again, Friends. Disaster Preparedness!! With all of the flooding in Texas, and ongoing preparations for fall-time hurricanes, now is the perfect time to plan ahead - To save our pets! Our pets are our family members - and there are many ways we can ensure their safety during the uncertain times of disaster. First, and most simply - Both the American Red Cross and The Humane Society host information and classes on Pet First Aid and Pet Disaster Preparedness. In a hurry or emergency, you can use this pet CPR guide (above). Also, make sure to post this kind of decal in every window of your home (there are many similar styles to choose from). Place the notifier/sticker especially at the front door where rescuers can see it. If you and your FuzzFace are separated, this helps rescuers who are specifically trained to look for pet identifiers. Many can be found for purchase online or at your local Fire Station. In the case that you are separated from your pet, area shelters partner with local disaster response agencies to shelter all pets until owners can be located. This is a new guidline in FEMA's 2012 mass-care initiative - a sad but very viable lesson (of many) learned from the failures of Hurrcane Katrina.
