We are a charitable organization, working under the direction of the Canadian Red Cross to set up and run emergency shelters, for animals affected by man-made and natural disasters. With the Red Cross being one of the leading organizations when it comes to providing humanitarian support in times of disaster, it seems like a natural fit that we now work together. People love their pets and would not want to leave them behind. Now, you can evacuate with your pet, and you both have a safe place to go.
Working with a great group of volunteers, we provide information to the public on emergency preparedness by attending community events, giving educational presentations and promoting items like our ‘Life Meter for Pets” that helps raise awareness about leaving your pets in vehicles in hot weather.
Remember, Emergency Preparedness starts with you.
Make sure your family has an emergency kit with enough supplies to sustain your family and pets for at least 72 hours. If you are unsure of what should be in your kit, a good resource is to contact your Canadian Red Cross, or visit http://www.getprepared.gc.ca/.
The Disaster Animal Response Team (www.dartns.org) can provide you with emergency planning checklist in case a disaster strikes or you are forced to evacuate with your pets.
Also, find out what your community/municipality is doing when it comes to emergency preparedness.
In Hurricane Katrina, many lives, property and animals were lost due to a number of factors. The Disaster Animal Response Team, under the direction of the Canadian Red Cross is able to provide emergency animal sheltering in the event a disaster strikes.
