National Pet Fire Safety Day #BtC4A
When I think about the things I fear most, a house fire is right at the top of the list. More horrifying than the idea of losing possessions, though, is the thought of Truffles not being safe if the worst were to ever happen. Does anybody else cringe when they watch the report of a house fire on the local news and hear that no one was injured, but pets were lost? It's as though their precious lives didn't matter as much.
I recently signed up to receive a pet rescue window decal from the ASPCA to alert rescue personnel that pets are inside my home. You can get yours for free here, along with an ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center magnet. I also hope you'll take some time to review the infographic below. It contains some wonderful, useful information on how to be prepared, yet also how to help prevent house fires in the first place. It's impossible to be 100% safe, but anything that can bring me a little peace of mind, especially with regards to Truffles' safety, is worth it's weight in gold in my eyes.
