September is National Disaster Preparedness Month

September is National Disaster Preparedness Month and Metroplex Animal Coalition urges everyone to be sure their families and their pets are prepared in case of an emergency. Never leave your pets behind if you have to evacuate – even for a few hours. If it’s dangerous for you to be there, it is dangerous for them.

We’ve compiled a list of some of the best resources on the web for the Disaster Preparedness page of our website at

In addition, all these sites offer wonderful tips and information to help you plan ahead and prepare an emergency evacuation kit for your pets. Don’t delay – get ready today!
