Emergency Contact for the Dogs

On a regular basis, there are stories of car accidents where there are dogs in the car but the police have no information on how to help the dogs, or more importantly who to call to help the dogs.

If there is information in the car about what to do with the dogs, the police will do their best to follow it.

So take a couple minutes and do this today!

Create a document using the outline below as a guide and tuck it in your glove compartment for a day that hopefully never happens. Remember to agree on this plan with your contacts ahead of time, so they know what to do if they get the call.

  1. What a great tip. I travel a lot with my dogs but never thought about leaving information in the car in case of an accident. My kids have already agreed to take my dogs if anything should happen to me, but I don’t have it in writing and certainly not in my car. This is something I’ll be doing today.
    Great information – thanks so much.
