Save-A-Pet Provides Pet Owners with
Preparation for the Start of Hurricane Season
(Port Jefferson Station, NY)† The 2006 hurricane season could prove to be
one of the most severe in the northeast for the past 70 years. A recent accuweather report suggested that although Long Island has not experienced a
hurricane for decades, the 2006 hurricane season, which lasts from June 1st
until November 30th, may break this trend. 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 has developed an Emergency Preparedness Evacuation Brochure. The brochure is free and emphasizes
planning for the often over-looked members of your family - your pets. Hurricane Katrina
rendered thousands of animals homeless and 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-Petís Emergency Evacuation brochures in your local
veterinarianís office, pet store, grooming shop, or doggy day care.
