Pasados will provide (at no cost):
* Temporary housing for any pet or livestock animal including cows, horses, goats, sheep, etc.
* Temporary care including feeding through this time of need
* Transport for all large animals

American Red Cross Snohomish Chapter and Pasados Safe Haven
Through am MOU (memo of understanding) reached earlier this year between the Snohomish County Chapter of the American Red Cross and Pasados Safe Haven, animal sheltering will be provided to flood victims forced to leave their homes with pets. This unique collaboration will keep animals and their guardians together through any disaster. PasadoRescue was the only Pacific Northwest shelter to rescue in the Gulf during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. We learned valuable lessons about how to assist pets and their guardians through this experience.
