From Bulletin sent by Kathy Lambert, NE King Cty Representative.
When a disaster inflicts its damage on citizens in our community, our pets are similarly affected. Here are some steps you can take to protect your pets when disaster strikes.
. Have a safe place to take your pet.
. Assemble a portable pet disaster supplies kit or bag.
. Assemble a pet first aid kit.
. Prepare a 24-hour contact list.
. Make sure all dogs and cats are wearing collars and identification.
. If you are away from home when disaster strikes, make arrangements for a trusted neighbor to take your pets and meet you.
. If you must leave animals behind, post a highly visible sign on a window or door letting rescue workers know the number of animals and breed in the house.
