Charlotte County Fire/EMS, Animal Control and Peace River Search and Rescue have partnered together in a program designed to inform first responders about the presence of pets during a home emergency.
Give your animals a voice with a Rescue Us Pet Sticker and let Emergency Responders know how many and what type of pets you have in your home. Place this sticker on the upper right hand portion of the front door so it is easily seen by Emergency Personnel. Your pets will be rescued if needed or Animal Control will be contacted to collect your animals for proper care until you can retrieve them or a family member can be contacted.
All the money collected from pet sticker donations will go directly to Peace River K9 Search and Rescue general fund a 501(c)(3), Fire and EMS Public Education Materials, and Animal Control's Trust Fund used for the rehabilitation of abused and neglected animals.
The cost of a pet sticker is $3.00.
