Community Pet Preparedness Toolkit

The third in our series of resources for National Preparedness Month addresses the concerns of pet owners during an emergency or disaster.  According to the 2011-2012 American Pet Products Association, 72% of U.S. households own at least one pet.  Translated into numbers, approximately 78.2 million dogs and about 86.4 million cats are owned in the United States.  The Ready Campaign, FEMA, Citizen Corps, American Red Cross, and the Humane Society of the United States have developed a community pet preparedness toolkit for owners or pet caregivers.  The toolkit contains links to pet-friendly lodgings, Ready Campaign Pets Toolkit, a trifold brochure that you can print for your consumers and community members, plus much more to explore.
