Armstrong County, Penn. – Because flooding threatens Leechburg and evacuations are taking place as a result of the Kiski River ice jam, animals could die if left behind during any additional evacuations that may become necessary. This information will undoubtedly save many animals’ lives and avoid much human remorse.

Never leave animals outdoors, tied up, crated, caged, in hutches, or confined in any way, as they will be unable to flee rising waters. Anyone who sees animals in distress and is unable to help should note their locations and alert authorities immediately.

PETA has released a disaster-preparedness public service announcement. For more information, please visit PETA.org.
