After Hurricane Katrina, we all vowed that we would never again see a time when pet owners are forced to leave their pets behind in a disaster-- but it's happening right now in Lebanon, and it's bound to happen again in every other place that doesn't already have companion animal protocol in place.
This group is devoted to lobbying for animal friendly legislature and educating all pet guardians on ways to protect animals in a crisis. Hopefully, together we can keep the pressure on for the developement of an effective companion animal evacuation plan.
