PETA: Safeguard your pet during severe weather

PETA: Safeguard your pet during severe weather

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — As weather forecasters warn Arkansas residents to brace for even more severe thunderstorms, flooding, and possible tornadoes this week, PETA is offering important advice for ensuring the safety of companion animals should residents experience major storm damage or flooding and be forced to evacuate. Please alert your audience to the following information, which could help save the lives of cats, dogs, birds, and other companion animals who need to be included in tornado and other disaster preparation plans:

  • If a tornado is expected in your area and you evacuate, never leave your animals behind. If the tornado is a threat to you, it's a threat to them. If you seek safety within your residence, be sure to include all your animals. If the storm causes flooding, never leave your animals outdoors, tied up, or confined in any way, as they will be trapped and unable to flee rising waters.
  • Know your destination ahead of time.

LITTLE ROCK AIR FORCE BASE, Ark. - Team Little Rock and The Landings at Little Rock AFB marked the opening of base housing's first dog park with a ceremony March 3.


The park will be dedicated and named for fallen 19th Security Forces Squadron Military Working Dog Uran, a veteran of five deployments in support of Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom. His search efforts yielded four explosive finds along Baghdad roadways in spring 2003 while deployed aiding United States Army infantry units.


Uran's unique talents were also employed as part of Secret Service details including support missions for President Barack Obama, President George Bush, Vice President Joseph Biden, Vice President Dick Cheney and former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. He also was requested to help local police departments cleared bomb threats in Bryant, Jacksonville, Conway and Lonoke County.
