We are honored to speak to one of their board members, Ms. Debbie Mueller. “All of our shelters and agencies have been greatly supported from all over the United States and other countries. And we served a lot of animals and for most people, our animals are part of our family and it’s just another important life that needs to be saved.” Debbie has graciously shared with us what we should do for our animal friends to prepare animal friends to prepare for unprecedented situations. “You should have a go plan for yourself and your animal and a go bag. So a plan being, ‘OK, where am I going to go if there is a disaster? Whose home can I go to? Do I have friends or family elsewhere? Are my pets or animals welcome?’ If you have large animals, you need to look at, are there surrounding stables or ranch land where you could take your animals?” We would like to give you the Shining World Compassion Award from Supreme Master Ching Hai for North Valley Animal Disaster Group in recognition of courageous selfless advocacy for voiceless animals, protecting, defending, and sheltering during adversity. With compliments and gratitude for your compassionate and benevolent commitment to save precious animal live.
