Can Animals Predict Disaster?

My answer can be seen on the PBS Nature Special on November 13, 2005. Animal Omens aka “Can Animals Predict Disaster” is part of the Nature series and will feature interviews with various animal experts from around the world. Put it on your schedule now!

If you want to know more extensive information you can get it from my Animal Disaster Preparedness for Pet Owners & Pet Professionals via the link to your right.

The Aftermath

It has been a while since I’ve been into update. Most of the animal rescue teams began leaving the Hurricane Katrina/Rita shelters and staging areas around October 7th. Although the main efforts have slowed, the reuniting efforts remain as a big hurdle. So many animals were relocated and have been waiting to be claimed. Many are just going up for adoption. Funny how many people want to adopt a disaster victim animal when so many others are waiting at shelters around the nation.

Anyway, with the recent earthquakes and other disasters highlighted in the news I just want to remind you that you should be prepared to evacuate with your pets at a moment’s notice.
