What will become of our faithful companions in the event of an accident or sudden hospitalization? That’s the question that many lone pet owners, especially seniors, ask themselves when a blow comes their way. To respond to this, the Lyon SPA is launching a new scheme, entitled “I have an animal at home”.
In concrete terms, it is a practical card to keep in your wallet and a small poster to stick on your house.
A free device
In the event of an incident preventing an individual from returning home, the device will signal the presence of a pet at his home to all those involved (firefighters, ambulance, law enforcement, individuals, etc.), and allow them to join, among the emergency contacts, the people who will have the possibility of looking after the animals.
This device is distributed free of charge in the April issue of “La Protection des Animaux”.
