Terrible fire, a few hours north of here and many of it's residents are in our city now. I can only imagine how many pets died in the house fires (some 2000+ houses burned down), the others that starved to death locked in crates with no food or water? The lucky ones had run of the house and at least had access to water.

I was living in Manhattan during 9/11 and I remember all the people who lived in Battery Park and surrounds who were not allowed back into their apartments for days after the events. There were stories all over the news because so many people had pets they were worried about and were not allowed to access. Really heartbreaking.

And it's yet another reason I hate the idea of crating an animal - and yet another reason not to do it. A dog locked in a cage has no escape if anything happens.

There's already stories coming out of Ft. Mac about dogs that crawled out of the rubble of a burned out house. But yet, others are dead of dehydration or starved to death in a house untouched by fire - cause they couldn't escape the cage, zero chance of survival, death sentence. It's hard to blame the owners, many weren't home when the mandatory evac happened, and weren't allowed to go home - get out of here. With a monster of a wildfire bearing down on them, there's not too many chances. The videos coming out of fort mac, people were driving through what can be classified as hell - fire licking the car doors.

Our pin is small, but he'll get water out of a toilet if it came down to it, there's 2 of them here if anything ever happened to us. Sprinklers in the condo as well, he'll get water somewhere. Food, they can do without for quite some time.

Now gawd love the renegade animal rescue groups, many snuck into town and broke into homes at the owners request and saved animals. There's alot of worried people here. Some dogs survived house fires, other are going to die needlessly.

Breaks my heart.

Emotional support dogs are marking a common presence in planes these days. As the demand for carrying emotional support dogs is increasing, the airlines have produced strict guidelines for the same. The reasons are:
-Increased incidents of dog bites on planes.
-Incidents such as pooping and peeing have repeatedly been a source of discomfort for fellow passengers
-There have been reports of dogs that went missing on board.

What has this got to do with airlines helping animals getting out of a fire 2 years ago?

Most domesticated dogs weighing 20 pounds or less are allowed to travel with their owners in the cabin of the plane. Owners cannot simply bring their pet on board. There are several rules and restrictions that dog owners must follow before they travel to get the okay to bring their small canine on with them

This was a special case a few years ago, exceptions were made for good reason.
