AKC Reunite is a 501(c)3 not for profit organization incorporated in the State of New York. Our AKC Reunite Canine Support & Relief Fund has been established as a charitable fund with the goals of providing resources, support, funds, and other assistance to not-for-profit animal shelters and similar not-for-profit organizations providing care for domestic animals orphaned or displaced as a result of natural or civil disasters. We have been most actively funding AKC Pet Disaster Relief trailers for emergency management first responders.
TAKE A MOMENT TO THINK ABOUT IT…
What if there was a forest fire, hurricane or flood looming and threatening your safety. Or, what if there is a chemical spill or an earthquake or tornado strike and you cannot safely return to your home? Where would you go? Where would you go with your pet?
Too often pet owners ignore evacuation warnings or return to dangerous and restricted areas to care for their pet. Not only is this decision dangerous, but it also puts emergency responders in peril trying to rescue people as conditions worsen.
AKC Pet Disaster Relief helps communities across the country be prepared to keep people with their pets during disasters.
The AKC Pet Disaster Relief program donates pet-related disaster preparedness and relief efforts, including but not limited to purchasing and donating the AKC Pet Disaster Relief trailers, donations to emergency pet sheltering organizations, and resupplying AKC Pet Disaster Relief trailers. Through these donations, pet owners will not need to risk staying in harm’s way because they don’t have a safe place to go with their pet.
