Are You Prepared For A Weather Emergency With Your Pet?

We are heading into that time of year where we see dark clouds forming and tornado alerts happening calling for upcoming weather emergencies.! Here we offer a list of helpful ideas that can get the ball rolling to help in a weather emergency BEFORE it happens!

  • It can happen to you, a tornado strikes your town, a hurricane blows through, or a flood happens. Make plans ahead of time to be sure your pets are protected when disaster strikes.
  • Make a pet evacuation plan. Research shelters and their pet policies. Keep copies of your pet’s vaccination records to take with you. If you don’t have a car find emergency service organizations that will help transport your pet. 
  • Have a one week supply of food for each pet.
  • Keep a list of boarding facilities and hotels that will take pets contact them to be sure of their policies.
  • Identify your pet clearly. Make sure their ID tag is up to date, have your pet microchipped, and use medical tape and a permanent marker to put your emergency location on their collar.
  • Put together an emergency kit. It needs food, their dishes, medications, leashes, and kitty litter.
  • Have a secure way to transport your pets, with a crate, harness, and seatbelt. 
  • Have an emergency first aid kit (for people and animals) and take it with you when you evacuate.
