August 29, 2015 was the 10th year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. Hurricane Katrina killed nearly 2,000 people and left 600,000 pets deceased or homeless. Almost half (44%) of the people refused to evacuate because they felt they could not bring their animals with them. Despite this tragedy, ASPCA recent poll shows that 35% of pet owners still don’t have plans in place for the next big storm.
