Disasters involving animals entail social, economic, moral, and psychological concerns. These include public health and safety, the human-animal bond, economic impact, and ethical and moral questions. This volume will advance knowledge on the topic of animals in disasters.
Manuscripts of original research using methods appropriate to the topic will be considered. Topics could include, but are not limited to, the following: (1) reducing animals’ vulnerability to disasters; (2) the role of the human-animal bond in post-disaster coping; (3) innovative rescue and response strategies; (4) improving preparedness; and (5) helping low-income and minority populations identify risks and create action plans.
