Animal Food Bank Foundation started this petition to Province of british columbia

Pets are forgotten in formalized disaster response plans.  The BC Government does not provision for them to be provided food or shelter or cover hotel pet fees in their hotel voucher program.  Their needs are not considered during immediate crisis intervention.  Organizations like Animal Food Bank step in to fill this gap.  Completely volunteer operated and non-funded.  We ask for a unified approach and plan for immediate crisis intervention, consistently available for evacuees at ALL Emergency Services locations during natural disasters.  We ask that you create a Task force made up of organizations like ours, and the many sister grass-root organizations who work alongside us to ensure pets are taken care, sit at a table with you to change this.  No pet should be left behind and no family should be left to choose their pets life over their own.
