PETA: Safeguard your pet during severe weather

PETA: Safeguard your pet during severe weather

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — As weather forecasters warn Arkansas residents to brace for even more severe thunderstorms, flooding, and possible tornadoes this week, PETA is offering important advice for ensuring the safety of companion animals should residents experience major storm damage or flooding and be forced to evacuate. Please alert your audience to the following information, which could help save the lives of cats, dogs, birds, and other companion animals who need to be included in tornado and other disaster preparation plans:

  • If a tornado is expected in your area and you evacuate, never leave your animals behind. If the tornado is a threat to you, it's a threat to them. If you seek safety within your residence, be sure to include all your animals. If the storm causes flooding, never leave your animals outdoors, tied up, or confined in any way, as they will be trapped and unable to flee rising waters.
  • Know your destination ahead of time.
