Hurricane Preparedness for Pets

Schnauzers Rule is praying for all of you who are in the path of Hurricane Irene. May you and your Schnauzers be safe from the storm.

Our Miniature Schnauzers depend on us to watch over them keep them safe. And when disaster strikes, they expect us to know what to do. The best thing you can do now to ensure the safety of your family is have a plan of action ready and remain calm.

During a state of emergency many services only provide for humans and pets are left to fend for themselves. Remember Katrina? There were over 600,000 animals left behind or stranded, of which many died. So have a good plan for your entire family (pets included).

Sadly the news often reports: "Despite the evacuation orders, many people have stayed put and have not heeded the city's warnings resulting in personal tragedy that may have be avoided."

Don't wait until to the last minute to prepare. Know ahead of time: Where to go. What to take. Who to contact.
