THE NEED IS REAL...THE TIME IS NOW
GIVE TO THE AKC REUNITE TRAILER FOR EFFINGHAM COUNTY ANIMAL SERVICES
LET'S MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Better community preparedness = successful local disaster response
When a disaster strikes and you need to quickly evacuate, what happens to your pets?
Savannah Kennel Club, Effingham County Animal Services, and pet lovers are working together to help ensure we never again see a pet perched on a rooftop, or swimming through floodwaters. We’re working toward purchasing an AKC Pet Disaster Relief trailer for Effingham County.
TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE THIS HAPPEN
The AKC/SKC Reunite trailer can be used as a pop-up emergency sheltering facility for pets that are
displaced from their families in a disaster’s aftermath. Instead of pet parents putting themselves in harm’s
way in an attempt to find their pet in a disaster area, authorities can use the AKC Pet Disaster Relief
supplies to quickly and efficiently create a temporary, safe haven to care for lost pets.
The pop-up shelter serves as a reunion center as people and animals are reunited. Approved volunteers
and shelter staff provide animal care.
OUR TRAILERS ARE STOCKED
The AKC/SKC Reunite trailer will be fully stocked with non-perishable necessities that can be used as a safe, temporary home-base for displaced animals. Effingham County Animal Services will be able to provide pets with much needed assistance immediately following a disaster before FEMA support and services are deployed.
READY TO ROLL OUT HELP
The AKC/SKC Pet Disaster Relief trailer is a 16 foot x 7 foot, two-axle trailer stocked with essential supplies to house at least 65 pets during the first few critical days after a disaster is declared. The trailer has interior lighting and is wired for electricity to run off either its own generator or a 110v power supply. In addition, the trailer is stocked with crates, pet carriers, bowls, collars and leashes, microchips and scanner, fans, cleaning supplies, maintenance equipment, administrative supplies, training materials, and much more to allow emergency personnel to put together lost-and-found pet shelters at the drop of a hat!
