This is your essential emergency preparedness guide for your feathered and furry children.
Pets are part of our everyday lives and part of our families. They provide us with companionship but also with emotional support, reduce our stress levels, sense of loneliness and help us to increase our social activities and add to a child’s self-esteem and positive emotional development.
Many people count on pets for therapy and are even taken to nursing homes, hospitals, care centers to encourage interaction and activities. Amazing pets can be trained not only to entertain but in serious stuff like in rescue procedures, medical alert and detection, disability assistance… amazing things. Pet’s save people’s lives on a daily basis.
One of our main responsibilities towards our pets is ensuring their health and welfare. As responsible “parents” and pet owners we need to ensure that our animals are protected, even when the situation is not “normal.” Add your ‘story with your pet protecting efforts on our blog.

About the Authors
Scott M. Haskins
Professional Art Conservator, Scott M. Haskins is considered an emergency preparedness expert for government, corporate and public art related matters since 1994. He is the author of the “Save Your Stuff” series, the most widely distributed preservation manuals for home-use in easy to understand language and entertaining format. He has worked in the US and Europe as a professional art conservator and preservation expert since 1975. His multimedia e-book, Save Your Stuff – Collection Care Tips, is distributed worldwide.
Mr. Haskins’ Save Your Stuff message includes family pets because they are part of the “uninsurable treasures” that can be a warm, comforting foundation of a family’s culture and heritage. They have been a part of his family for decades. His family cherishes the companionship of pets which also give so much emotional support, reduce stress levels, help relieve loneliness, help the family to interact more, add to a child’s self-esteem and promote positive emotional development. So, just as with our family history items, one of our main responsibilities towards our pets is ensuring their health, preservation and welfare. As responsible “parents” and pet owners we need to ensure that our animals are protected, even when the situation is not “normal.” Hence the push to fill a void in the pet world… more than a tri-fold pamphlet… a useful and interesting reference as THE essential emergency preparedness guide for your feathered and furry children.
