Pledge To Take Your Pets With You
Do you have a pet? Are you prepared? Unfortunately, some pet owners are not prepared when a disaster strikes. In fact, we have seen first-hand through our disaster rescue efforts that pets—especially cats—are left behind to fend for themselves.
Disasters can happen at any time; so plan ahead, be prepared, and don't lose sense of your priorities—pets are family and should never be left behind. Pledge now to be a responsible pet owner who will take ALL pets with you.
How can you prepare for you and your pet? Check out the Pet Disaster-Preparedness Kit.
I pledge to be a responsible and loving pet owner. I consider my pet as my family and there is no excuse not to treat my pet as so. I am aware that leaving any pet behind during an evacuation is a sign of neglect. There are many resources available to help me plan and prepare for my pet if and when a disaster strikes.
The Humane Society of The United States started this pledge with a single signature, and now has 22,410 supporters. Start a petition today to change something you care about.
