  Many people find it easy to take care of their pets when they evacuate their homes. However, the pets that don’t make it out in time must go to a pet disaster relief trailer.  The Orange County fairgrounds often accept large animals, like horses, during natural disasters, and the Orange County Animal Care has worked to house smaller animals.  The mobile trailers can be taken where residents are sent to provide for their pets.  The trailers, that are 16 feet long, will be able to give 130 cats and dogs a home.  They will also be provided with pet crates, collars, leashes, food bowls, and other supplies needed to keep the animals alive.  Despite having all of these resources, the Animal Care officials still warn pet owners to be prepared for any natural disasters, says Jessica Novillo, by having pet food, extra water, and any medications that may be nessecary.
