Why do we have a "Maricopa County Citizen's Corp"?

http://www.maricopacitizencorp.org/home.html​

When the Arizona Central Region Citizen's  Corp dissolved in 2015, we saw a gap needed to be filled.  Most Citizen's Corps, have a focus on having Professional Responders/Rescuers and high energy, healthy citizens involved. We refer people who wish to get involved with high energy  to CERT, MRC and other response groups to those located in their city but ~ 65% of families have at least one pet! 

(Thank you Wag Magazine, for this fact from the 2015-2016 survey by the APPA  National Pet Owners!)

What about the Grandmother with Alzheimers, with her cat,~the one thing that keeps her grounded and connected, or the young boy with Autism with his doggie that keeps him calm but isn't a service dog?  What about seniors, families who care for ill or injured at home, functionally disabled (27% in Arizona are functionally disabled, up from 25% the previous year) Parents with  very young children and more, with pets/service dogs?

Our focus is education on evacuation and the other decisions within the first hours of disaster response, and to build relationships with local community:~churches, schools, small businesses who dont even know they are required by OSHA law (1910.35-38)  to have these plans in place and practiced!  

Still need cash donations for this work now!  It is up to you.  
Will you help them, be their HERO?   

Pass a empty bowl around your business, group, friends or post it on your social media feeds please?
