Are your animals included in your disaster plans?
#1
If you are evacuating and need help with your animals, this post is a good place to start. These links are city or state specific, but in large disasters, organizations may travel out of state.

This link is for all the animal disaster response teams Nationwide. Scroll through to your state.

PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE YOUR ANIMALS TIED OUTSIDE TO FEND FOR THEMSELVES AFTER YOU HAVE GONE TO THE SHELTER.

This is a post from another forum that never should have had to be written:
I remember during Floyd all the horrible horrible horrible sights of the chickens and hogs who had drowned.
I was one of the people who went around with a S&R group trying to find pets/animals still alive. I can't tell you how many dogs we found tied up by dog houses. As the water rose the dogs most likely tried to swim for awhile climbing on dog houses (you could often see the nail scratches as they were struggling to stay above water) but their chains did them in in the end. I will never forget the horror of what they went through. I hope no one ties a dog up in rising waters again. I would rather see them set free to take their chances.


I pray for all in the path of these storms. If this post saves one animal it was worth my time to post. God Bless everyone in the path of these storms.

   Amazing to read that. I've often thought I'd rather live in God's Trailer Park or in a hut made of sticks on the fringes of God's Heaven than in any Hollywood mansion or castle built for an earthly Lord.  -beggar

Yes...
I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

100% It couldn't possibly be any other way! It's shocking to me that anyone WOULDN'T include their animals.
Where there is imbalance I am the counterweight. Beware, for if you are a cause of imbalance you may not enjoy my presence.

No worries, should there be a need evacuate our furry little buddy will go with us, where ever we go. She is a "peeples", not a dog. Heartflowers

Yes, although it would stress my cat out to the extreme.

Who the fuck would leave an animal tied up outside during any emergency?! Heartless assholes

Got her very own BOB, she can carry all her own food!! Well, enough of it to get us where we are going. Both of us will be on foot or the Bicycles if, or when SHTF.

People who would do this should not be allowed to have pets. They probably should not have children either.

Nor should they have their own personal freedom

We humans truly do not deserve the loyalty and love that comes with a good dog
