Have You Made Emergency Preparations for Your Pets?

Preparing for an emergency ahead of time could mean the difference between life and death for your pets. This year’s unpredictable spring weather has hit many parts of the United States and left communities in peril. The Midwest continues to suffer from the deadliest tornado season in U.S. history, flooding has affected both the East and West coasts, and Texas continues to brave through drought. That still leaves us with hurricanes, fires and earthquakes to worry about. In this week's issue we cover the current rescue efforts of animal welfare organizations around the country. We also give you tips on how to prepare ahead of time, before your community is threatened by a natural disaster, including what to put in your pet emergency kit. Your pets rely on you the most when disaster strikes, so please be prepared.
