Update: After a dog died in a Detroit house fire on Wednesday, PETA is extending our offer of free emergency stickers to 1,000 Detroit-area residents.

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 February.
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 shipping store.
