Emergency Trailers Help Create Safe, Temporary Home Base for Pets After Disaster
The Talbot Kennel Club and Caroline County Health Department have joined forces with AKC Reunite, the nation’s largest non-profit pet identification and recovery service, to raise funds to bring a life-saving AKC Pet Disaster Relief trailer to serve Caroline County.
The trailer will be officially unveiled to the public on Tuesday, June 28th at 1:00 PM at tWith AKC Pet Disaster Relief, the Caroline County Health Department and Caroline County Humane Society will be prepared to roll out help to pets and their owners in need in the county and the surrounding areas if the unthinkable ever happens. The trailer houses supplies that create a safe, temporary home-base for at least 65 pets immediately after a disaster is declared. Materials can be used at co-location shelters where people evacuate with their pets, or at stand-alone emergency animal shelters for displaced animals.
The trailer will provide materials to help the county prepare for disaster without using taxpayer dollars. The purchase of the trailer was made possible by more than $22,000 in donations and grants from Talbot Kennel Club, Caroline County Health Department and AKC Reunite.
