(PRWEB) October 13, 2005 -- Congressman Tom Lantos (CA-D) announced on Animal Radio® new legislation entitled The Pets Evacuation and Transportation Standards Act (PETS Act, H.R. 3858).

This new legislation will ensure that in any future disaster, federal officials will not separate people from their household pets and service animals such as seeing-eye dogs, as they did in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Lantos is also the co-founder of the Friends of Animal Caucus. Hear the Congressman this week on Animal Radio®
