Keeping Pets & Owners Together During Disaster Evacs
« on: October 25, 2005, 11:07:03 pm »
I just received an email about this legislation and thought I would share this with you all.  Seems like a worthwhile thing to do.  All I know is that if a natural disaster happens here and we have to be evacuated, Drake and our kitties are coming with us.  There is no way I would leave them behind, I would probably go insane.  Check out this link and decide for yourself, I think this is a good idea "just in case" something happens here.

I just signed this petition.  Angelsmama has a beautiful quote at the end of her profile that I added into my comments on the petition.

"He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.  You are his life, his love, his leader.  He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.  You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion."

Let's be worthy BPOers and show our support for legislation that helps animals!
