A Reno company is selling evacuation survival kits for pets. Our contributor Kaleb Roedel of the Northern Nevada Business View has the details.

 

  

Last year, after Hurricane Harvey, Reno resident Michelle Danielson collected donations, filling a pickup truck and trailer with pet food and supplies.

 

She then drove some 4,000 miles to Texas, delivering much-needed supplies to people and their pets in need.

 

The trip inspired Danielson to establish Pet Evac Pak LLC, a company that offers emergency survival kits for pets.

 

The kits are packaged in either a backpack or airline-approved pet carrier for easy grab and go. They contain enough food and water to sustain pets for 72 hours in an emergency.
