under circumstances like this where the phones are not working they should continue to bend the rules and keep them to give the owners a chance

It's good to see that the plight of animals is now being considered after the Katrina tragedy. I think with each disaster, the needs are becoming clearer and, hopefully, emergency procedures will be put into place before the next disaster strikes.

It is terrible what happened to Nashville. What's sad is that it could happen in lots of areas. This article had a lot of good information in it. Hopefully, no one will need to use it, but it is great to have just in case. I hope all the people in Nashville are reunited quickly with their familes.

Article gives very helpful tips. Since many areas are experiencing severe flooding, it would be nice to see the Red Cross partner with the American Humane Society to work out a shelter plan for animals. Many boarding kennels are in flood prone areas as they were not established to rescue pets from floods.

I love my pets and after they are safe and sound during a disaster and I am once it has ended I would leave them were the safe house was and go and see if I could help any stranded or lost pets. But not much stuff like that happens in Longview although it is always good to be prepared.
