Pet owners and emergency response teams learned how to prepare their pets for a disaster Sunday.
The Helping Hands Humane Society in Topeka educated people on how they and their pets can be prepared for a natural disaster.
Organizations including the Red Cross and the Kansas Department of Health and Environment were there to help teach preparedness.
Owners also learned how to build a disaster kit for their pets.
“It’s very important because we know that pets are part of our family. To make sure that we’re getting them prepared as we’re getting ourselves. Included in our family disaster kids extra food, water, extra leashes and treats. Including a toy or something that they can have to play with that will keep their stress level down during storms.”Said Michael McNulty with the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.
