When there is a house fire in Franklin County, it is common to see an American Red Cross van arrive at the scene. American Red Cross volunteers are trained to help people recover from disasters such as home fires and begin to put their lives together again.
People who have lost their belongings in a disaster frequently receive “comfort kits” from the Red Cross containing necessities such as combs, toothbrushes and shampoo. Comfort kits come with a variety of items depending on the needs of the recipient. There are comfort kits for adults and children – and dogs and cats! What a great idea!
Dog and cat comfort kits may contain food, treats, collars, leashes and food dishes. These things can mean a lot to a pet that has just lost everything. Thanks to the American Red Cross for the help they give to disaster victims – and their pets. Find out how you can get involved today!
