If Disaster Strikes, Are You Ready To Care For Your Animals?
If disaster strikes, are you prepared to evacuate and care for ALL family members? Disasters that could occur in the San Joaquin Valley of California are wildland fires, flooding, dam failures, earthquakes, severe weather, agricultural hazards, and extreme temperatures. Pet owners who are educated on disaster preparedness will be better prepared to evacuate their families and pets during a disaster. No one wants to leave a pet behind; however, many people are not prepared to safely evacuate their pets or have the necessary resources and supplies for pet care to last the duration of the disaster.
Since 2013, the Central CA Animal Disaster Team (CCADT) has responded to 32 wildland fires, several flooding issues, and multiple single/multi-family home fires. We understand the importance of the human-animal bond. If you need to evacuate, DO NOT leave your pets behind!
