Please Save My Dog

Had these stickers made at carstickers.com for about $5 ea. Giving their call names may make them less hesitant to heed the rescuer.

While we used this method for years, I removed ours from our windows (both home and camper) because I did not want a fireman to risk his life to save our dog if the dog was not actually home.

We had a suction cup hanging red tag with white letters made that hang in the windows near our doors now that move with us to the camper. (Had them made at the Goshen Rally)

We love our dog, but would not want a fireman to lose his life trying to save her; we would be devastated to know that it was all for nothing if she was not even in the camper or house.

Will try and get a photo today.

No offense but I've been a volunteer firefighter ever since we moved out of the city. (Now Dep Chief) We STRONGLY encourage the folks in our fire district to place a placard on their front and/or garage door with pet and child information. If we know at the outset that we need to check the interior before much else, we do. Otherwise we're taking a gamble on missing someone in the fire. When it's all coming down, the last thing I want to do is risk one of my firefighters in a home if there isn't any need to go in.

Like I said, we use a removable sign so we can take it down when the pet is not inside. No sense risking a firefighter's life for no pet (or child) at home.

You're correct, a removable sign would be a better deal. Thanks.

You can still get those stickers, I would place it on a clear or white plastic sheet(clear license plate covers works), it'll go where ever you go, it whether at home or camping with your trailer

This is a great idea!

For under ten dollars (Canadian) I had an approximate 12" x 14" magnetic customized sign / decal made through VistaPrint (just upload a picture file of your making) with "2 dogs on board - please rescue in case of emergency". When we absolutely need to leave them alone in the trailer, it goes up on suction cups. Whenever we are traveling with the dogs, with or without the trailer, the sign is stuck to the tailgate. Fortunately, we never had to test the effectiveness. My oldest daughter's boyfriend is a volunteer fire fighter and paramedic, and through him the feedback has been "appropriate" and potentially useful.
