DAVIDSON, N.C., Sept. 8, 2009 -- Charlotte-based Pet Grab-n-Go(R), LLC, a company dedicated to products that increase pet safety and protection, announces its first safety product: Pet Grab-n-Go(R).
After three years in development, Pet Grab-n-Go(R) (pat. pend) provides an all-in-one storage space for your pet's supplies and can double as a crate cover in your home. Now pets of all kinds no longer need be separated from their belongings and their identity.
Of the estimated 50,000 pets left behind in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, approximately 13,000 were rescued and only 20 percent, or about 2,500, of those pets were reunited with their owners.
Michael A. Williams, Director of Sales, says, "June 1st marked the official start of hurricane season, so now is a good time to actively prepare for your pets. The same measures of preparedness are also important when applied to home accidents or other natural disasters, such as floods, tornados, wildfires and severe storms."
Only 21 states have enacted pet evacuation plans per The Pets Evacuation and Transportation Standards Act of 2006. "That means pet owners must take responsibility for their pet's safety," advises Williams. Today, this is possible with a safe, convenient and easy Pet Grab-n-Go(R).
In any emergency situation, Pet Grab-n-Go(R), LLC recommends three steps all pet owners should follow:
First, use the handy supply list provided in a Pet Grab-n-Go(R) to create a list of pet necessities. Don't wait. Collect your supplies now. Pets cannot prepare for themselves.
Second, owners should keep all pet necessities in one location for quick retrieval. "This is vital for their safety," says Carolyn B. Matlack, Inventor. Pet Grab-n-Go(R) makes it easy by providing all-in-one storage for your pet's picture and I.D., vet records, toys, first aid kit, food, bowls, medicine, leashes, kitty litter and much more.
Third, contact hotels and motels and keep a list of pet-friendly places, including phone numbers. Ask friends, relatives or boarding facilities and veterinarians if they can provide shelter and include 24-hour phone numbers on your list. Local shelters may already be overwhelmed, so they should be used only as a last resort.
Pet Grab-n-Go(R), LLC was born of the inventor's lifelong love for animals. "Following the horrific scenes of Hurricane Katrina, my passion developed into a personal vow to increase the survival rate of our beloved animal family members during a disaster," says Matlack, who is a lawyer/author of "We've Got Feelings Too," a book offering a solution about improving our legal treatment of animals.
"Our mission," Matlack continues, "is to offer pet owners peace of mind by providing safety and convenience for their pets at home, while traveling and during emergencies." When not on the go, use your Pet Grab-n-Go(R) as a decorative crate cover in your home, or hang it in a closet as a shoulder bag. No matter how you use it, a Pet Grab-n-Go(R) keeps you ready to grab and go!
