Tips for Protecting Your Animals in a Disaster

  1. Keep a “Pet Emergency Kit” ready. The kit should include: a few days worth of medication, your pet’s medical and vaccination records, a leash, collar, identification, water, food, toys, and bedding.
  2. Make sure that your animals have some form of permanent identification such as a microchip, brand, tattoo, etc.
  3. Purchase a pet carrier and label it with emergency contact information.
  4. Store water and feed for emergencies.
  5. Create a contingency plan for animals including horses, live stock, etc., in an emergency situation that addresses transportation, water and feed resources, and areas for confinement if needed.
