Get a Kit, Give a Kit to a Pet in Need
As last year’s hurricane season demonstrated, the effects of a natural disaster can be devastating to both people and pets. Unfortunately, the majority of pet owners aren’t equipped for an emergency. A 2018 survey conducted by Banfield Pet Hospital® revealed 91 percent of pet owners are not prepared for the next natural disaster. We want to help pet owners be prepared for when—not if—the next disaster strikes.
In celebration of FEMA’s National Animal Disaster Preparedness Day on May 10, 2018, the Banfield Foundation has donated 1,000 pre-assembled pet disaster preparedness kits to vulnerable pet owners in some of the hardest hit areas—Houston, Baton Rouge and New Orleans. Each kit contained a waterproof bag filled with a blanket, dog or cat treats, stress-reducing products collapsible water bowl, important tips and more. Help us continue our efforts to provide the veterinary care, temporary shelter and disaster relief for pets in need by making a donation to the Banfield Foundation today!
