For pet lovers in the US: Help The Humane Society of the United States
Urge your members of Congress to pass the PETS Act so that no pet is left behind when disaster strikes.
I hope you will never be forced to make a horrifying choice: Abandon your pet and find your way to safety, or stay with your pet and remain in a hazardous, and potentially life-threatening, situation. But during Hurricane Katrina, thousands of people were given just that choice.
Today, I urge you to take action to help save thousands of animals from this tragic fate - and save pet lovers like you from being forced to confront this awful choice when disaster strikes.
Here's how you can help right now:
Take action. Ask your legislators to support the Pets Evacuation and Transportation Standards (PETS) Act today. This legislation requires state and local authorities to take into consideration the needs of individuals with pets and service animals in disaster plans. You can make a difference for people and animals. Click here to contact Congress now.
Spread the word. No one should have to make the choice between their companion or service animals and their own safety. Click here to tell your friends and family how they can help ensure pets are included in disaster and evacuation plans.
With your help, we can make sure that when the next disaster strikes, no pet will be left behind. Thank you for your action on behalf of animals.
