The U.S. Senate is considering the Pets Evacuation and Transportation Standards (PETS) Act, which would require that pets and service animals are included in disaster evacuation plans.
Please help us get this law passed today. Send one of our moving eCards to your friends and family and urge them to take action. Each card tells the touching story of a pet rescued by The Humane Society of the United States after Hurricane Katrina. At the very least, email or call your Senator or Representative and tell them to support the PETS act. I know this isn't a feel good pic..and I am sorry but I will not get off this soapbox anytime soon. The smallest,most helpless victims of disasters need our protection, the government will not do it without our pressure. CLICKING ON THE PIC WILL TAKE YOU TO THE HUMANE SOCIETY'S WEBSITE FOR THE PETS ACT. It will explain the bill and what is in it, plus for those lazy folks, it has a form that will automatically be sent to your Senator after you fill it out.
