ASPCA: Disaster Preparedness for Furry Family Members
The ASPCA recently contacted me to share information with you about animal disaster preparedness.. September is Disaster Preparedness Month and the ASPCA is bringing together various disaster experts for a Google+ Hangout to talk about how to prepare for disasters with pets. The virtual event will take place tomorrow, Thursday, September 18, 2014, at 7:00 p.m. EST and it will be moderated by Good Morning America’s weather anchor Ginger Zee, featuring experts from ASPCA, FEMA and USDA, as well as special animal guests who were disaster survivors. Please RSVP and join the Hangout and find further information here!
Additionally, the ASPCA is educating pet owners to remember their pets when planning for an emergency. Please visit here to find out the latest tips and get a free rescue alert sticker for their home. Further, the ASPCA is encouraging people to download the ASPCA’s free ASPCA App which includes a check-list of actions to take before, during, and after a major storm. This is important information to have in order for you and your furry family member to be prepared in the event of an unforeseen disaster.
