New Bill Passes 349-24

This seems to be at the top of the news right now, "Bill Includes Pets in Disaster Planning".

"The bill, which passed 349-24, requires that state and local preparedness offices take into account pet owners, household pets and service animals when drawing up evacuation plans. Offices that fail to do so would not qualify for grants from the Federal Emergency Management Agency".

Um...no-brainer!

I am with the, "49 percent of adults say they would refuse to evacuate if they couldn't take their pets with them". I wouldn't go anywhere without the dog.

Just a little tidbit. Thanks for stopping by.

You bet it's a no brainer when out pets will always treat us better than FEMA!
