Tens of thousands of Colorado residents – and their pets – were evacuated as the worst wildfires in the state’s history continued to burn out of control. Dogington Post launched a Pet Fire Safety Campaign in light of the tragedy, when emergency preparedness and fire safety should be on the minds of all pet owners who watch the news of the wildfires unfold. The campaign arrived just in time for July 15th, National Pet Fire Safety Day. The online dog news source announced their campaign using the Colorado wildfires as an example to spark dog owners’ interest in pet fire safety.
This latest initiative is designed to encourage all dog owners to develop a safety plan and to educate pet parents on what to do in the event of a fire emergency. Dogington Post is featuring news of displaced dogs from the Colorado blaze in hopes that their stories will encourage pet parents to prepare themselves for a fire emergency.
The site has included expert advice on what to include in your pet first aid kit; best practices to avoid a fire disaster in your home; how to make an emergency evacuation plan, including resources to find pet-friendly shelters; where the site’s readers can donate for those interested in helping the displaced dogs of the Colorado wildfires; and a highlight on the Johnson family, well-known dog breeders who have opened their kennels for free to evacuated animals in Colorado Springs.
