The start of the Atlantic hurricane season is just days away–and tornado, fire, flood, and other disaster situations are already in the news.
Please take just a moment to think about your disaster plans for your pets. What if you suddenly have to evacuate with your pets? What if you’re at work and can’t get home to evacuate your pets?
We’ve got some quick organizing tools on our sites to help you get your pet’s information organized so that you–or a rescuer–can get your pets to safety.
- You’ll find a free downloadable emergency pet ID form that just takes a few minutes to print and complete. Leave a copy with your emergency info and another copy safely tucked away.
- Here’s a video Dr. Marty Becker, America’s Veterinarian, shot for us with advice on preparing for a natural disaster with your pets.
- Here’s a checklist of items to assemble in an evacuation kit and another that includes information on making plans for where you would evacuate to in the event of an emergency.
Hopefully you’ll never need this information–but it only takes a few minutes of preparation to have the peace of mind of knowing that you’ve taken the steps to keep your dogs and cats safe in an emergency!
