When a crisis strikes, the safety and well-being of your family is, of course, your number-one concern. But, what about your pets? How will you care for them after a flood, fire, medical emergency or other urgent situation?
Humane League of Lancaster County recently launched its Supporting Animals & Families in Emergencies program called SAFE Haven, which helps responsible owners get back on their feet after an unplanned event by offering temporary respite pet care, free of charge. “By providing this service, it often means the difference between a family having to give up their pet to an animal shelter for adoption or being with the family once the crisis is over,” states Humane Pennsylvania President & CEO Karel Minor.
SAFE Haven provides pet housing, food, supplies, basic vaccinations and medical care for up to 30 days at no cost to the owner. 717-393-6551 or humanepa.org.
