Following the deaths of two dogs in a
recent fire in Cleveland, PETA is offering free "Please Save Our Animals"
stickers to the first 1,000 Cleveland-area residents who request them via e-mail during
The heartbreaking loss of cherished animal companions should
serve as a reminder of the importance of emergency planning that includes all your family members. Firefighters
and disaster-relief workers frequently perform heroic rescues
of animals, but it's vital to let them know to look for your dogs, cats, or
other animals who might be missed amid smoke or wreckage.
If you share your home with animals, placing PETA's bright-yellow
emergency window stickers near your front and back doors and on side windows
can mean the difference between life and death for them in case a weather
emergency or fire strikes when you aren't home. For those outside the Cleveland
area, stickers may be ordered
from the PETA Catalog—or you can
easily create your own sign on your computer and get it laminated at a copy or
you have a general question for PETA and would like a response, please e-mail Info@peta.org. If you need to report cruelty to
an animal, please click

animal and if the abuse is taking place right now, please call your local
police department. If the police are unresponsive, please call PETA
immediately at 757-622-7382 and press 2.
