AKC Pet Disaster Relief

Rolls Out Mobile Help For Greenville Pets

The Greenville Kennel Club and Palmetto Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club have joined together with AKC Reunite, the nation’s largest non-profit pet identification and recovery service, to donate a life-saving AKC Pet Disaster Relief trailer to Greenville County Animal Care.

With AKC Pet Disaster Relief, Greenville County Animal Care will be prepared to roll out help to pets and their owners in need in Greenville and surrounding communities if a natural disaster ever hits the area. The trailer houses supplies that create a safe, temporary home-base for at least 65 pets immediately after a disaster is declared. Materials can be used at co-location shelters where people evacuate with their pets, or at stand-alone emergency animal shelters for displaced animals.

The purchase of the trailer was made possible by more than $22,000 in donations and grants from Greenville Kennel Club, Palmetto Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club and AKC Reunite. The trailer will provide materials to help Greenville prepare for disaster without using taxpayer dollars.
