You never know when and where disaster will strike. Be sure to prepare for every member of your household well before an emergency takes place. Planning is the best way to ensure the safety and well-being of all of your loved ones and property.
• Keep a collar/harness and tag or other ID on your animals. Micro‐chipping is recommended as collars can come off.
• Put together an emergency kit for your animal which includes a two week supply of water, food, and any necessary medications. Materials needed to properly dispose of waste should also be included in your kit
• You should have a picture of you/your family with your pet kept in your emergency kit. This will help identify you as the owner if you should be separated from your pet in a disaster. Include detailed information about species, breed, age, sex, color and distinguishing characteristics.
• Have a leash, carrier, cage, or kennel for each animal.
• Keep vaccination records and pet Information sheet easily accessible and in waterproof containers.
• Identify several locations where you can take your animals should you have to evacuate your neighborhood.
Keep a removable sign in your window alerting authorities of the types and number of pets inside your home. Make sure to write the words
“Evacuated with Pets” across the sign, should you or someone else flee with them.
