this petition is calling on Federal disaster grants to state and local governments should include plans to protect pets in their evacuation plans. Please support The Pets Evacuation and Transportation Standards Act (PETS Act, H.R. 3858), sponsored by Reps. Tom Lantos, Christopher Shays, Barney Frank, Don Young and James Oberstar. This new bill would require that the state and local disaster preparedness plans required for Federal Emergency Management Agency funding include provisions that will protect household pets and service animals.You can even upload a photo of yourself with your pet and include your statement about why pets should not be abandoned in times of disaster. We did! My mom says that animals do way too much for human beings (service dogs, search and rescue dogs, working dogs, police dogs, military dogs, drug and bomb sniffing dogs, and companions and protectors) to be abandoned in times of disaster.
