Mission: Helping educate and prepare pet owners for emergencies with their pets.

Programs: Pet safe coalition's mission, first and foremost, is to inform and educate pet owners as to how to keep their pets safe in emergencies and disasters, and, secondarily, to provide temporary sheltering for household pets in the emergency phase of an emergency or disaster.

Based on Long Island, NY Pet Safe Coalition has been around since mid 1990s but recently decided to go National. You see - Pet Safe Coalition is a Disaster Response for Animals Group - helping pets in need in the aftermath of a disaster. I joined Pet Safe in February 2012 when they decided to start a West Coast Chapter. I have had the extreme pleasure of working along side really compassionate people in this organization. We had out 1st volunteer training on the West Coast this past October and as we were wrapping up training Super Storm Sandy was hitting the East Coast where Pet Safe Coalition HQ is. Our wonderful Director, President of the Board, several board members and a lot of the volunteers on the East Coast were effected by Sandy but non the less managed to get an Emergency Shelter up and running the very next morning after Sandy hit...because they had a plan ahead of time! The Director of Response even brought her comfy RV down from Connecticut so some of the responding volunteers had a quiet place to rest...but when a couple found them selves without a place to stay as they awaited the clean up process of their home the volunteers gladly re-located their beds and belongings to the shelter area and moved the couple into the RV! The Shelter has been in full operation since October 29th and even moved to a larger location to take in more pets. To date Pet Safe Coalition has cared for over 500 pets and is still housing around 100 while pet owners pick up the pieces of their lives after this devastating storm. I was unable to respond to this particular disaster but sent many volunteers from California - all reporting what a wonderful experience it was to help care for hundreds of pets and work with a congenial and professional group who cared fro the pet owners as much as they cared for their pets - listening to their stories and sending each owner home with lots of pet food, comfort items, new leashes and collars and a hug. I am so impressed with this organization...I am a 11 year Disaster Response Veteran and this is the BEST group I have ever had the pleasure volunteering with!
