Wacky Liberals with far too much time on their hands

From an appeal I ran across from the Humane Society of the U.S.
Save Pets From the Next Disaster

Help prevent what happened after Katrina from ever happening again. The Pets Evacuation and Transportation Standards Act (PETS Act), requires state and local authorities to consider the needs of individuals with pets and service animals in the event of a major disaster. You could help save thousands of people and pets from anguish -- even loss of life -- during the next major disaster, just by filling out the form on the right to ask your U.S. Senators to support this legislation.
I consider myself very liberal on many issues. But this emphasis on animals when humans aren't even being taken care of goes over the top. It also seems a sort of unfunded mandate.
