As part of our Girl Scout Silver Award Pet Preparedness Project, we identified some items we would like considered for the Florida Disaster Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday. Per Pawlicy.com, 56% of Florida households own a pet. According to the website Statista.com, the annual expenses for dog owners is about $1200 and cats about $700. To encourage people to prepare for possible evacuations with their pets, these are the items we would like added to the list:

·       Kennels or carriers

·       Dry/wet food

·       Leash, collars, and muzzles

·       Manual can opener

·       Feeding bowls

·       Cat litter

·       Litter pan

·       Pet pads

·       Hamster/rabbit substrate

·       Pet beds

The tax-exempt holiday incentivizes people to plan ahead and prepare. We know you care about the health and safety of Floridians' pets because they are truly part of our family. We ask that you present these items to be considered for the 2022 list of items for sales tax exemption. Thank you for your consideration.
