EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS

Be Prepared, Be Informed…

Pets depend on us for their well being.
The best way to ensure pet safety is to prepare.
All emergency plans should include your pets.

BE IN THE KNOW

Know what disasters could affect your area.
Know which friends, relatives, facilities or veterinarians can provide emergency care.
Make a list with phone numbers.
Create a buddy system with trusted neighbors.
Know which hotels and motels accept pets.
Call ahead to confirm emergency shelter arrangements.

KEEP CURRENT

Keep your pet’s vaccinations up to date.
Make sure pets are wearing collars with current identification.
Remember, shelters often require proof of vaccination.

MICROCHIPPING

Consider having your pet “chipped” and enrolled in a recovery database.

GEAR UP

In a waterproof container, assemble an emergency pet supply kit that includes:
Contact information.
Current photos of you and your pet.
Pet information — breed, age, sex, behavior, feeding instructions, medical conditions.
Veterinarian name and phone number.
Medications and medical records.
Leashes, harnesses or carriers.
Food and water — at least a 3-day supply, plus bowls.
Sanitation — litter and litter box, newspapers, paper towels, waste bags.
First aid — bandages, bandage tape, scissors, antibiotic ointment, Isopropyl alcohol, saline solution, pet first aid book.
Flea and tick prevention.
Familiar items such as treats, toys, and bedding.

IF DISASTER STRIKES?

Warnings are often issued if a disaster approaches.
At the first hint of disaster, protect your pet.
Bring pets indoors so you won’t have to search for them.
In case of an evacuation, bring your pets with you.
Never leave a pet chained outdoors.
Keep pets under your direct control.
