C.A.R.E. for Paws creates pet disaster relief kits for distribution through the Northeast Wisconsin chapter of The Red Cross to help owners care for their pets while they are in transition after a disaster.
Each kit for dogs contains a blanket, two stainless steel bowls for food and water, food, a toy, and a slip leash. Each kit for cats also contains a litter box and scoop. The cardboard containers that hold these items can be used as carrying crates for cats and small dogs.
Evacuate your family, including your animals, as early as possible. By leaving early, you will decrease the chance of becoming victims of the disaster.

"In the event of a disaster, a family is so upset, and they are so concerned about their animals, so the kits add a small measure of comfort in a terrible time. The kits assist our clients in being more comfortable in their temporary lodging-whether it is a hotel or relative's home. And it also allows the client not to have to use their money on replacing pet equipment immediately.
I cannot tell you how the clients look at us when we provide these kits. I wish you could experience it just once. They are so amazed that we have thought about their beloved animals in a disaster, and that is thanks to your foresight in this."
