Rescue Dogs in Heavy Snow, Earthquakes, and other Natural Disasters

Written by: Rose Gell Maghinang

A dog is indeed a man’s best friend. They provide great camaraderie, loyalty, and unconditional love to their owners. They might look different to people, but they totally have almost the same characteristics, they have a heart that loves, a brain that thinks smart and they are very compassionate to the people who treats them right. In short, they are not just dogs, for some, they are family member and should be treated as one.

That is why it is very important to take good care of these amazing dogs and rescue them in times of natural disasters or every time they need help. Since almost all of them can’t take care of themselves, as responsible owners they should provide all the things that the dogs need to survive in case unfortunate events occur.

Why is it important to rescue dogs in case of Natural Disasters? There are countless of reasons why a person needs to rescue a dog during natural disasters such as:

·         They are part of the family – A dog is definitely a part of the family and as a family member, they need to take care of each other, they need to rescue a dog as much as they can because it is what family member does. It is important to keep them warm in case of heavy snow and keep them safe during any other natural disasters that might harm them.
·         They would sacrifice themselves if they can just to rescue their owner – Dogs are well known to provide unconditional love their owners and during any kind of unfortunate events, they surely won’t hesitate to rescue their owners even if it means risking their own life. It is great to return the favor if possible.

Those are just some of the reasons why rescuing a dog during natural disasters are very important. Now here are some tips on how to easily rescue them during these unfortunate events:

  • Create a disaster plan for the dog – It is great to always be prepared for natural disasters, while creating a disaster plan for the family, do not forget to include the dogs and any other pets that they have, be sure to include dog food in their pack together with other necessities needed for both the owner and their pets.
  • ID the pet – Make sure to include all the information needed in the dog’s ID including the owners contact number and address so just in case the owner lost their dog during the natural disaster, they can easily track and identify their dog and if someone finds them, they know where to return them.

Owning a dog is a huge and long-term responsibility, it is almost like having and raising a child for as long as 15 years, it requires time, love, and effort. So if a person is not committed and not yet ready to handle a big responsibility, then it is better to not own a dog at all.


So if it is possible to rescue a dog during natural disasters, a person should do their best to do so.

It is set to make people’s lives easier and more convenient with this fast and quiet strap.

It is a ready solution for any strap or lace needs that one can conveniently carry in his or her pocket or worn as a bracelet.

GeniusStrap can be used for those long headphone wires, power cords, data cables, and other pesky wires on top of the table, inside the drawer, or server farms. GeniusStrap can be used to tie loops of wire and keep it in its place. This ensures a neat and organized desk and drawers. It can also be helpful on a crazy hair, gym or yoga day. It can be used to secure flip-flops or slippers for the little ones. It is a more sophisticated and efficient substitute to a conventional rubber band. It also works great as an eyewear strap.

In a world where there are a lot of meetings to attend, too many deadlines to beat, and life tasks, it is important to save time in as much ways possible.

Ellen Degeneres brings Fun Oscars back!

Ellen Degeneres changed the game when she hosted the 2014 Oscars. She brought excitement, she brought lots and lots of laughter, and she brought the pizza! She kept everybody in a light mood without deviating from the glitz and glamour that the Oscars always have. Her personal touch to this star-filled event made it extra special. It left everybody with a smile on their faces. It made everybody remember different Oscars moments fondly. It even made way for the ultimate selfie of all time and broke Twitter.

Ellen’s Best Oscars Moments
Never a dull moment with Ellen Degeneres – from reminding how Jennifer Lawrence fell that night just like how she fell last year, to her selfie, to ordering pizza, and to the legendary selfie that broke twitter with its greatness!

And this is how the selfie ended up:

Jennifer Lawrence tried to keep herself from falling but failed. Fortunately, a lot of people, including her boyfriend, Nicholas Hoult, came to her rescue and helped her stand up.

Photo from Radio Times

Jennifer Lawrence seems to start a tradition of falling at the Oscars. Although to others, it may seem like a very embarrassing moment, it just made Jennifer even cuter and more endearing! It also helped a lot that Ellen promised Jennifer not to tell anybody while Ellen was on stage. Some secret keeper!

She probably realized how her “falling” moment will end up and how it funny it is that she seem to enjoy the red carpet too much and how she seem to have fallen in love with the event that she just laughed it off.

Photo from Clevver


Ellen even suggested that they just bring Jennifer Lawrence the Oscar if she wins that night. It will definitely save her the trouble. This is how it happened last year:

Here’s the most star-studded pizza party ever! Ellen ordered pizza and when you have Brad Pitt distributing the plates, it is definitely a BIG party!

Of course, somebody has to pay for a pizza. Here’s Ellen, collecting pizza money.

Cate Blanchett won as the Best Actress in a Leading Role while Lupita Nyong’o won the Best Supporting Actress Award, and perhaps the most shared acceptance speech in social media.
