Pressing Reset: Rethinking Your Role in a Disaster
HOSTED BY: Broward County Animal Care & Adoption
Thousands of pets are displaced from their owners during natural disasters. The lessons learned from Hurricane Katrina, Superstorm Sandy, the Colorado Wildfires, and the Oklahoma Tornados are shifting how shelters work to save pets’ lives and reunite them with their families in the wake of a disaster. Our nationally-recognized speakers have an important message that will challenge your thinking about your shelter’s role in a disaster and lead you to re-evaluate how your shelter should be preparing for the next catastrophic event.

When & Where
Found Animals Registry
The Found Animals Registry was built for one reason: to reunite all lost pets with their families. For animal care professionals, we provide low-cost microchips and scanners and free microchip registration. We then simplify the reunification process by automatically calling, texting, and emailing the pet owner and emergency contacts. Humane organizations can search for microchips and send automated Found Pet Alerts to pet owners 24/7 at www.found.org.
We are a division of Found Animals Foundation. Learn more about our foundation's programs at www.foundanimals.org.
