In the days and weeks following Hurricane Katrina, we watched helplessly as images of lost, scared and hungry pets made national news. Nothing was more heartbreaking than seeing dogs and cats stranded on rooftops or balancing on porch steps, wondering why they were left behind.
In Naples, Florida we experienced first-hand the devastating Hurricane seasons and hurricane experts are predicting active hurricane seasons for the next several years. We wanted to do our part to help protect pets by providing a unique and service for pet owners and their pets.
Hurricanes are not the only natural disaster affecting pets. Wildfires, flash floods, tornados, snowstorms, earthquakes and now the threat of terrorism affect other regions of the United States. At a moment's notice pet owners must evacuate their homes, sometimes with no other option but to leave their pets behind. Some pet owners are reunited quickly with their pets. Or sometimes days, weeks, and months pass before you can see your pet again.

Plus we must not forget about the everyday dangers for pets. Pets are vulnerable when traveling, escaping at a rest stop on the highway or from a RV or hotel. Even in their own homes, a door can be accidentally left open and a pet can escape.
Sadly, pet owners and their pets are separated everyday. But there is hope. Thanks to the thousands of people who care, pets and their owners are reuniting, and those pets that are not are ending up in shelters every day waiting for a new home.
