I know this was covered before but didn't turn up in search and maybe it should have. The same member that has that window cat cage also has this sticker on her door:

She said she got hers at PetSmart but I'm sure they are available at most pet supplies. Anybody else have one?

I have a different version from Petco. It has spaces to list the numbers of dogs and, or cats - it's made of static cling plastic which is easily removed and reused - reverse printed to be placed inside a window or door window. I removed part of it to reduce the blockage of the window.

CA Poppy posted about these stickers. Sounded like a great idea so I ordered a few. Got them, and I am impressed. Really quality work. They have them for all kinds of cats and dogs. I put one on window of each outside door, and one on the outside electrical panel (required by code here, just has a switch in it to kill all power in house) since that is the first place firemen go if your house catches fire. I then have one left for the HTTTH door.

I talked to a Fireman that said these stickers/signs mean nothing to them. They are not going to risk their life or others rescuing your pet. Their main concern is to put the fire out and protect the surrounding from burning.

Bet that fireman was specking of should do's, because I have seen too many firemen rescue pets from burning homes here in the Indy area alone. We have one on our trailer to let someone know there is a pet inside.

It does not hurt to put the stickers on, in case a fireman will get the pets out.

But like fulltimer said, alot of them will not go in looking for pets. My father-in-law is a fireman, and echoed this.

The decal website I mentioned before is:
Pet Safety Decals

We often are at the scene of housefires, after the fact, and have seen firefighters gently consoling the owners of deceased pets. They tell us that dogs and cats will often hide under beds or in closets when they see fire or smell smoke. That pretty generally precludes any rescue.

Of course, no firefighter is going to risk his/her life searching for a pet but there are cases when the fire is reported so early that it might be possible. A dog, for instance, may respond to a whistle or being called. Or the animal might be close to a window, looking for help. There have been photos in a local newspaper, of firefighters administring oxygen to a pet.

Suppose there were an earthquake or flood and you were not home? The same decal might alert authorities or neighbors that your pets need help. Might help, won't hurt, that's the way I see it.

An article I found, there are many:

Firefighters learn to revive pets

Also note that at our recent huge wildland "Day" fire that started on Labor Day and lasted more than a month, a trained disaster dog spent the last two weeks providing stress relief for the firefighters who were on breaks at a tent city for feeding and rest. That dog, another Bailey, went around and visited and enjoyed the company of the exhausted men and women. Ideas about pets are a'changing...

I have the removal plastic stick on ones. I have them placed on the MH AND the SUV. It has a line for who to call also. Not something you'd want to think about but if you are knocked out or die. Rescue can make a call or forward the number to the shelter regarding the pets in the event of an accident.

This was brought up at our EMT meetings and for 'MANY' reasons, firemen, police and EMT's DO welcome the notification of how many and what kind of pets are in a home during an emergency BEFORE they open the door. They advocate pet stickers in the window of the front door in homes and windows of a vehicle.

IMHO a 'good thing' for all RV'ers to have. [emoticon]


We must be willing to get rid of the life we've planned,
so as to have the life that is waiting for us.
