Detroit -- In the wake of the death of a dog who was trapped in a house
fire on the Detroit-Hamtramck border on Wednesday, PETA is giving away
door stickers, which alert firefighters to the presence of companion animals,
to the first 1,000 Detroit-area residents who request one this month.
The 4½"x6" bright-yellow
stickers—which read, "In Case of Emergency, Please Save Our
Animals"—picture a dog, a bird, a cat, and fish and include space to write
in the number of each species living in the home.
Residents interested in receiving a free sticker
should e-mail Info@peta.org
to file a request.
People living outside the area can purchase the stickers at PETA.org or make their own. PETA

firefighters were unaware that they were trapped inside," says PETA
Associate Director Lindsay Rajt. "Simply alerting first responders to the
presence of animals can mean that all family members survive a
PETA routinely receives accounts of firefighters who have
bravely rescued cats, dogs, and other animals from homes in the midst of a
blaze. Even if the animals are unconscious from inhaling smoke, specially made
oxygen masks have been used successfully to revive them.
