The weekend forecast calls for very wet, windy weather this weekend. The SPCA for Monterey County reminds you to keep your family and your pets safe during the storm and potential flooding, mud slides, and power outages.
The SPCA for Monterey County offers free disaster preparedness information for people, pets, and livestock in English and in Spanish on our website, including a list of items that should be included in a disaster preparedness or evacuation kit. This vital information can be found at www.SPCAmc.org/prepare.
If you are ever given orders to evacuate, take your pets with you. Remember, what is dangerous for you is also dangerous for your pets. The SPCA strongly recommends not waiting until the last minute to evacuate with your pets or livestock. Take time to prepare your pets and family in advance. If you are unable to take your pets, please contact the SPCA immediately for assistance.
As part of our commitment to the safety of the people and animals in Monterey County, the SPCA also provides free pet disaster preparedness presentations to local community groups. These important presentations last 60 to 90 minutes and cover everything you need to keep yourself, your family, and your pets or livestock safe during a disaster.
Please contact us at 831-373-2631 or 422-4721 or visit www.SPCAmc.org for more information.
The SPCA for Monterey County is your nonprofit, independent, donor-supported humane society that has been serving the animals and people of Monterey County since 1905. The SPCA is not a chapter of any other agency and does not have a parent organization. They shelter homeless, neglected and abused pets and livestock, and provide humane education and countless other services to the community. They are the local agency you call to investigate animal cruelty, rescue and rehabilitate injured wildlife, and aid domestic animals in distress. Online at www.SPCAmc.org.
