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.
