Natural Disasters & Your Pets: How You Can Keep Them Safe

When natural disasters strike, many people have plans in place to make sure their families stay safe. Though you may be ready to stay safe, there’s often one family member that can be forgotten in the rush of an emergency: the family pet.

June is National Pet Preparedness Month – a month where pet parents are encouraged to think about their disaster plans.

Dogs, cats, and other pets can easily become disoriented during and after a storm. This means they may try to run away or hide from even the people they trust and love.

In order to help you prepare for your furry family member’s safety in a natural disaster, we’ve put together this handy infographic that provides tips for a few different types of storms.

Celebrating “Adopt a Shelter Pet Day” Every Day

Celebrating Adopt a Shelter Pet Day Every DayToday is Adopt a Shelter Pet Day, a day where we spread awareness for pets that need homes in shelters and rescue organizations across the United States. The organizations in our local area are run by a group of dedicated individuals who have a strong passion for shelter pets and would do just about anything to help them find their forever homes.

One of these amazing volunteers is Sierra. In addition to adopting 3 shelter pets of her own, she also has volunteered and fostered animals with numerous rescue organizations in the Fargo-Moorhead area. She improves the lives of animals every day.

 We had the pleasure of meeting Sierra (and her animals) and learning more about her connection to this important day.
