Disaster Planning
    Prepare: Make a Pet Emergency Kit
    • Food & water for at least 7 days in an airtight, waterproof container. 

    • Animal first aid kit with any of your pet's medications. Include copies of medical records. 

    • Identification: attach visible ID tags to pet collars and carriers. Have photos of your pets including a photo of you with your pet. 

    • Animal Care Supplies: Collars/harnesses, leashes, carriers or portable kennels, food/water bowls, toys/treats, blankets

    • Sanitation Items: kitty litter, newspaper, trash bags, litter trays. 

    • Microchip your pets: keep the contact information linked with microchip up to date. 

    Plan: Decide Early On What You Will Do
    • Identify Evacuation Routes

    • Find pet-friendly lodging or boarding kennels

    • Create a buddy system- plan with friends, neighbors and relatives. Make sure someone is available to evacuate your animals if you can't. 

    • Practice loading your animals into their carriers and into your vehicle.

    • Keep needed supplies in a central, easy to reach location.
