I received my free pet safety pack from the ASPCA yesterday. It took a while (oh about two months) but better late than never, right? I first learned about this pack in one of Pet Sugar's posts. It's from last year, but thank goodness I chanced upon it. Whenever I watch the news and see a home that caught on fire, or an area affected by an earthquake or like lately, the gas leak explosion in San Bruno, I also wonder if they had pets in those homes. What about them? =(
Being a stay-at-home mom, I'm almost always home. But there are still some days when I would be out doing some errands or spending some quality time with the family. So should something happen while we're not at home, though there are no guarantees, it's good to have this sticker/decal on my balcony sliding door or window as a precaution in case of an emergency (earthquake, fire, etc). It contains info like what kind of pets you have at home and contact number. I also plan to make one so I can stick it on my front door.
Just for picture purposes. Filled it out after.

Another thing that was included in the pack is an ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center Magnet. It will come in handy in case your pet ingests something toxic. Trained veterinary toxicologists are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year should you need them. This magnet has now earned a spot on my refrigerator.
God forbid these will be needed but it's best to be prepared. Order yours now for free at the ASPCA site.
