The devastating news and images coming from the Bahamas are heartbreaking and shocking. Living in South Florida, the Bahamian people are some of our closest neighbors, so it’s no surprise that we’ve already started to hear about many of our local businesses and organizations who are collecting relief supplies and donations to help all of those who are affected by this monster hurricane.

I know that many of you are wondering how you can help, so we are compiling a list of links to causes and organizations that are helping the Bahamas Hurricane Dorian relief efforts. It’s still early, so I’ll try to keep the list updated as more information becomes available. You can also check out this Charity Navigator list of reputable organizations.

As pet parents, it’s our job to know what to do in an emergency. Are you prepared? This month ASPCA is helping us to get prepared, with tips and information for disaster preparedness month.

None of us likes to think about bad things happening, but it’s important to take the time now to make certain that you and your furry family members have everything you need in case of a life-threatening emergency. One of the best ways to do this is to create a disaster prep safety kit with all of the necessary supplies should any type of disaster affect your community.

To help you create your home’s emergency kit and keep your pets safe, the ASPCA has provided an excellent checklist of items.
