Save-A-Pet Provides Pet Owners with Information in Preparation for the Start of Hurricane Sandy

Long Island is bracing itself for Hurricane Sandy. One of the most vulnerable populations is pets, who are often forgotten in the chaos of natural disasters. In order to ensure the well being of your pets, it is necessary for you to formulate a plan before disaster strikes.

To assist local residents, Save-A-Pet Animal Rescue and Adoption Center, Inc. has developed an Emergency Preparedness Evacuation Brochure. The brochure is free and emphasizes planning for the often overlooked members of your family: your pets. Save-A-Pet hopes that the information it provides to pet owners will prove invaluable when families take steps to prepare for hurricanes and other natural disasters.

Save-A-Pet is committed to ensuring the health and well being of all animals. As a non-profit organization and no-kill animal shelter, Save-A-Pet acts as a safe haven for animals in need while working with the Town of Brookhaven Animal Shelter to place orphaned animals in loving homes. Save-A-Pet offers services such as spaying and neutering, improving the lives of homeless and abandoned animals, and works to educate the public about the importance of being a responsible pet owner. Look for Save-A-Pet’s Emergency Evacuation brochures in your local veterinarian’s office, pet store, grooming shop, or doggy day care.
