What would you do with your Pets if a Disaster hits home? Be Ready with these Tips

If you have pets, you know how important they are to you and your family. They are more than just animals; they are your companions and friends. But what would you do if a disaster strikes, and you have to evacuate your home? How would you keep your pets safe and comfortable? Here are some tips to help you prepare for emergencies with your pets:

- Make sure your pets have identification tags with your name, phone number and address. It is a good idea to carry a card saying if you are injured you have pets alone at home. You can also microchip them for extra security.

- Have a pet carrier or crate for each pet. This will make it easier to transport them and keep them calm during stressful situations.

- Pack a pet emergency kit with food, water, bowls, leash, collar, harness, toys, treats, blankets, medications, first aid supplies and any other items your pets need.

- Keep a list of pet-friendly hotels or shelters in your area or along your evacuation route. You can also ask friends or relatives if they can host you and your pets in case of an emergency.

- Plan ahead for different scenarios. 

    What if you are not at home when a disaster happens? 

    Who will take care of your pets? 

    What if you have to stay in a shelter that does not allow pets? 

    How will you reunite with your pets after the disaster?

- Practice evacuating with your pets. Train them to get used to their carriers or crates and to follow your commands. Make sure they are comfortable in the car and know how to behave around strangers and other animals.

By following these steps, you can ensure that you and your pets are ready for any emergency. Remember, your pets depend on you for their safety and well-being. Don't leave them behind!

Stay Safe Out There!
