AKC mobile unit serves pets after disaster

Posted October 30, 2013

The American Kennel Club has developed a mobile vehicle to roll out to disaster areas to help our furry friends.

The AKC donated the first-of-its-kind Pet Disaster Relief Trailer, stocked with crates, microchips and microchip scanners, which can serve as a mobile boarding unit for pets whose owners must evacuate when natural disaster hits, or for those left homeless after an emergency. It can accommodate up to 50 cats and dogs.

The mobile unit will be stationed in Pamlico County.
