"Communities with well-developed animal response plans, along with trained and equipped animal response teams, are typically better able to protect resident livestock and companion animals during a disaster, with fewer animals lost, higher human evacuation compliance rates, and a greater percentage of pets staying with their families. The NCARE Study is a cross-sectional descriptive survey designed to assess, among US states and counties, the level of preparedness for managing animals in an emergency."

"HSI provides on-the-ground relief and collaborates with local and global organizations to help animals impacted by and (sometimes unavoidably) left behind in disasters. Remember: if you evacuate, take your animals if you possibly can. If it's not safe for you, it's not safe for them."--From the HSI website
