The National Association of Professional Pet Sitters has released a disaster preparedness guide, which is designed to provide pet sitters and pet owners with tools to guide them through natural and man-made disasters.

"Pet owners and pet sitters can use the guide to develop personalized disaster plans for their businesses and homes," NAPPS said.

The guide includes an official pet identification form and a complete disaster supply kit checklist.

"Currently, only NAPPS members have access to the guide, but pet sitters will be able to purchase it through the NAPPS website, by next month," said Felicia Lembesis, administrative director of the association. It will retail for about $50.

Ultimately, NAPPS said it plans to develop a national disaster preparedness network to provide its members with pet supplies and help relocate pets in the event of a disaster. It is working with pet-related organizations and businesses, as well as national corporations to assist in funding this initiative.
