Disaster Preparedness for Your Pets

3/23/2018 (Permalink)

Creating a thorough emergency plan includes preparing for your pet's need as well. Remember, if if you must evacuate due to an emergency, then it is not safe for your pet to stay home either. Your evacuation plan should consider where your pets will be accepted. Make a list ahead of time of hotels that are pet friendly along your evacuation route and near your final destination. Some hotels and shelters do not accept animals. And lastly, build a travel emergency kit for your animals. This will help you save time when you must evacuate. 

Items to include in your pet's emergency kit:

  • leashes, harnesses, and/or carriers to transport animals
  • food, drinking water, bowls, can opener
  • cat litter and pan
  • medications and copies of medial records
  • a first aid kit
  • current photos of you with your pet/s in case they get lost
  • information on feeding schedules, contact information for veterinarian, medical conditions, and behavior problems in case you have to board or foster your pets
  • pet beds and toys
