If a fire breaks out in your area and you are not home and can't get 'behind the lines' to get your furbabies, what do you do?

Call the animal control folks in your county. The numbers are also on the home page:

Park County Animal Control
(Bailey) 719.836.4121 x5
JeffCo Animal Control
(Golden) 303.271.5070
Clear Creek Co Animal Control
(Georgetown) 303.679.2376

They will want to know how to get in to where you keep your pets so a hide-a-key is a good idea. Be sure to tell them if any pets are on meds and where those are.

If the fire becomes larger, Animal Control will call in other groups like Animal Evacuation Volunteers. They are trained to go behind the evacuated lines to get your pets for you.

Recurring nightmare. Good and helpful advice.

Thank you, WG2! Hope we do not need to use this. Not looking promising for fire season, per wxgeek, though. Being disabled these days I do not relish the idea of a 5' snowstorm in March, but we need the moisture. Has chocolove "retired" her snow sox? :)

Check out Iheartdogs website. They have a key chain thing that says 'my pet is home alone' with place for an emergency contact # should you be in an accident.

At Buster's I've seen special decals you can put in a window listing what type and how many pets you have at home.

What a great post WG. So considerate for Pinecam members but equally important for our furry friends which are so important in our life. Thanks.

no problem - it's good to share the info
(thanks for asking first)
you might not want to include the part about the numbers being posted on the home page though, that's only pinecam's homepage - or better yet, tell them it's posted on Pinecam's home page!
