Research conducted by Leslie Irvine and Casara Andre, DVM, on pet fatalities during the 2021 Marshall Fire received extensive media coverage over the fire’s December 30 anniversary. They have collaborated with Animal Help Now on the development of a pet rescue app. PetHelp&Rescue will be released for iOs later this month and for android soon thereafter. It will enable pet owners to create trusted networks of people who can access their homes and rescue their pets in case they are away from home during an emergency. Here is some of the coverage:
