14th International Animal Disaster Preparedness Day

Do you have a plan in place in the case of a disaster? If you don’t have one yet, this is the ideal time to start. Our dogs rely on us to keep them safe, so knowing what to do in the event of a crisis is critical.

FEMA has some suggestions for putting together a pet disaster go-kit:

  • Each pet in the home should have first-aid supplies.
  • Each pet will have a three-day supply of water and food.
  • Food and water bowls, trash bags, and a leash and collar/harness are examples of pet-care items.
  • Medication for your pet
  • Copies of your pet’s medical records from the veterinarian
  • In case you can’t be contacted, provide contact information for other family members.
  • Photographs of your pet, as well as photographs of you with your pet, in case you get separated.
  • Comfortable objects from home, such as a favorite toy or blanket, might help your pet relax.
  • Pet carriers are easily accessible.
