12137Keep Our Pets Safe During Disasters
- Jan 4, 2005Hi,
Some of you may already know of the online petition I started last
summer titled "Keep Pets Safe During Disasters," which asks that the
American Red Cross accept pets into shelters (along with their human
caretakers) when disasters strike.
The end date for the petition is January 30th and I wanted to make
this post to remind anyone who hasn't had the opportunity to sign to
please take a moment and lend your support with your signature. The
signature total is presently almost 20,000 and I hope to break that
by the end of the month. Anyone wishing to sign can go to:
At the end of the month I will approach the President of the American
Red Cross in Washington, D.C. with the petition and ask that the Pet
Safe Program (mentioned on the petition page) be adopted by chapters
across the country.
Thank you very much, and please help spread the word!!
