    Hurricane Season is Here! Don't Forget Your Pet!

    What to do with your house pets during severe weather: Hurricanes, Tornadoes, Floods etc

    We all love our pets, some take it to a whole new level. Mine are viewed as mouthy, gobble-gut kids. But as much as we love them, Hurricane Katrina was proof that most people ditched the pets and left....throwing them under the bus to survive on their own. Roughly 600,000 pets were killed or were left without a home as a result of Hurricane Katrina. Many pets lost their lives due to the immense weather, and others could not be taken into safety shelters so they were unfortunately left stranded. Generations of domestication and breeding have made them as helpless as a toddler in times of emergencies, yet some still believe their dog will have enough instinct to move to safer ground. Sadly this was not so for many dogs and cats.

    As we progress through this year's hurricane/monsoon season, don't forget your pet!!
