Okay, I am releasing a preliminary version of my revised Animal Disaster Preparedness for Pet Owners & Pet Professionals in PDF format today.
I’m still working on adding photos and other interesting information but the 53 page guide has valuable information needed by pet owners and animal professionals.
Why am I releasing it now?
I am getting sick of seeing stuff like this:
We heard people with pets were being turned away from evacuation buses (because they didn’t have pet carriers!), our team responded with three thousand pet carriers to be sure those folks could evacuate with their pets. (From Best Friends Animal Rescue)
To get a copy of the Animal Disaster Preparedness Guide, you just need to be a subscriber here at Ark Animals.
We are revising the site and it will be available once that is done after you confirm you’ll get the download page password.
Disaster Resources for Veterinarians and Pet Owners as Hurricanes Gustav, Hanna, Josephine and Ike are excellent examples of why National Preparedness Month, held every September, is so important. Preparation is the best defense.
Here is a preview of the Animal Disaster Preparedness Guide Table of Contents:

I’d love it if you would promote this free resource on your websites or blogs. You can find the codes for the banners below or on the Resources page.
Hoping that we can be part of the solution so we see less news stories about animal disaster victims!
