Would You Leave Your Pets Behind in an Emergency? [POLL]
Deminski & Doyle want to know if you would leave your pets behind in an emergency.
According to Kevin McArdle, after Hurricane Katrina in 2005, a law was put in place that requires state, county, and local offices of emergency management to adopt emergency management plans that include provisions for the support and care of pets in emergency situations.
New Jersey Assemblyman, John Burzichelli says,
Hurricane Katrina was an eye opener for us. People were refusing to leave their homes because they didn’t want to leave their pets behind and those that did leave were forced to abandon their pets.
When we saw all the pleas for help finding missing pets in Katrina’s aftermath, we had hoped to minimize that problem for our state by enacting this law.
