BringYourPet.com Helps Guide Pets to Safe
Harbors During Hurricane Season
.
Knoxville, TN – September 2, 2004 – BringYourPet.com is responding to the need for safe shelter for pets and their owners during disasters. Disaster shelters, such as those set up by the Red Cross, cannot accept pets due to government health and safety regulations. BringYourPet.com is the first step in finding lodging facilities, such as hotels, motels, and inns, outside of their immediate area that are pet friendly before a disaster strikes. 

"We are seeing firsthand in Florida how critical it is to prepare in advance for caring for animals during disaster," said United Animal Nations' Interim President Jennifer Fearing. United Animal Nations runs the Emergency Animal Rescue Service (EARS) that has been deployed for nearly three weeks in central Florida caring for more than 300 animals displaced by Hurricane Charley. EARS is now bracing, along with the rest of Florida, for the threat of Hurricane Frances.
 
"It is imperative that animals do not get left behind during the storm - but to bring animals with you requires forethought and planning," Fearing continued. "Please visit our website at www.uan.org to get more information on how to prepare your animals in advance."
 
The usual animal care facilities can not be counted on either. Boarding kennels, veterinarians, and animal shelters are usually filled beyond capacity to meet the needs of displaced animals. BringYourPet.com allows pet owners to prepare a list of pet-friendly properties to keep on hand in the event that an unforeseen disaster occurs. 

In addition to finding pet-friendly accommodations, pet parents must prepare a disaster kit for their animals today. A good kit would include a week’s supply of food, two weeks’ worth of water, and to make sure that their animals are always wearing a collar and tag. Owners should also include current photos of their animals, a week’s supply of any long-term medication and a first aid kit.
