A local restoration company is teaming up with the Windsor/Essex County Humane Society to help protect pets during home emergencies.
Parker DKI donated the entire printing costs for decals that inform first responders of animals inside a home.
Humane Society Executive Director Melanie Coulter says it's an easy way to help save pets lives.
"Well there's an option to list the number of animals you have and the different species. Then you can put it on a window that's going to be visible to first responders and so then if they're in your home they can know that there's two cats in there and rescue them," says Coulter.
The decals were printed by Charit-ees, a project of the Downtown Mission.
The decals can be picked up free of charge at the Parker DKI office or at the humane society.
Representatives of Parker DKI and Tecumseh Fire were at the humane society on Tuesday to begin distribution of the decals.
