Home Base for Pets After Disaster

Members of California-based American Kennel Club dog clubs and AKC Reunite, the nation’s largest non-profit pet identification and recovery service, presented three AKC Pet Disaster Relief trailers to officials from the County of San Diego Department of Animal Services this past month. The trailers are the first AKC Pet Disaster Relief trailers in the state of California.

With AKC Pet Disaster Relief San Diego communities will be prepared to roll out help to pets and their owners in need when a disaster is declared, covering everything from a wildfire evacuation to an earthquake response.

An AKC Pet Disaster Relief trailer provides the supplies that help create a safe, temporary home-base for at least 65 pets immediately after a disaster is declared. The trailer will provide materials to help the County of San Diego prepare for disaster without using taxpayer dollars.

The purchase of the trailers was made possible by more than $65,000 in donations and grants from local California clubs, national breed parent clubs and AKC Reunite. The California AKC clubs that made these trailers possible include the Silver Bay Kennel Club of San Diego, Del Sur Kennel Club, Bahia Sur Kennel Club of Chula Vista, Cabrillo Kennel Club, Hidden Valley Obedience Club and The Obedience Club of San Diego County, Inc.

The trailer will provide materials to help the County of San Diego prepare for disaster without using taxpayer dollars.
