DO YOU HAVE YOUR HURRICANE PET KIT READY? A good hurricane plan includes providing for your pet's needs in case of a storm. All pet owners should now begin putting together a Pet Survival Kit that will be ready for use if a hurricane should hit our area. The kit must be made of waterproof plastic material and include the following essentials:
- Copies of your pet's medical records, including veterinary clinic phone number
- Rabies certificate and County license information
- Tattoo or microchip numbers
- Photo of you and your pet (to help prove the pet is yours)
- Pet crate or carrier
- Extra collar and leash
- Food and water bowls
- Food and water (enough to last for a week - don't forget a can opener!)
- Cleaning supplies (newspaper, disinfectant, plastic bags, paper towels)
- Cat litter

OUR 2-FOR-1 cat adoption program has begun. From now through September 30, feline fanciers are able to adopt two cats at the single adoption fee of $74.95. The adoption fee for both cats includes a health exam, vaccinations, feline leukemia/AIDS test and spaying or neutering. In addition, each cat will also receive a Broward County pet license. The special rate also applies to our adoptable cats located at all Pet Supermarket stores in Broward County and the Mississippi "flood cats" that we have rescued (see story below).
MISSISSIPPI FLOOD CATS NEED A HOME! Your help is needed in providing a new, loving home for Jack and Gigi, and eight other cats that have been displaced because of recent flooding along the Mississippi River. In partnership with the ASPCA, Broward County Animal Care has helped to rescue the homeless felines. Cat lovers who are interested can visit our Fort Lauderdale Adoption Center, 1870 S.W. 39 th St. We are open for adoptions this Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
