Disaster Preparation: Is Your Dog Safe If The Next Katrina Hits Your Town?
The best time to think about the safety of your dog is before a disaster strikes. Before Hurricane Katrina, there was no law that said that all pets and service animals needed to be evacuated, rescued, and sheltered during an emergency or disaster. When the deadly storm hit the state of Louisiana, an estimated of 600,000 animals were left behind, deserted, and thousands died from drowning, starvation, and sickness.
