In this video you’ll meet Petey and several other dogs staying at the animal shelter next door to the people shelter in Prescott, Arizona. Here dogs are cared for by a Red Cross partner agency. Pet shelters are very helpful because pet owners feel safe leaving their homes knowing their pets will be well cared for.
Partnerships are critical to the success of any disaster relief operation. The American Red Cross has dozens and dozens of them. One of them is with the Salvation Army. In Arizona, the Salvation Army is providing much of the food for the shelters. For more information on Red Cross disaster responses, go to redcross.org
