Have an Emergency Pet Care Plan

  • If you evacuate, take your pet with you. Most emergency shelters do not allow animals, so have a plan for your pet. Safe places to take your pet may include homes of friends or relatives, pet friendly hotels, pet kennels or veterinary facilities. Prepare a list of contact numbers in advance. Contact your local animal control facility for information in your area.
  • Choose a designated care giver, such as a neighbor, friend or relative to care for your pet in the event that you are unable to do so.
  • Affix a Rescue Alert Sticker to the front of your residence. The sticker should include the types and number of pets in your house and veterinarian information.
  • Ensure that your pet wears a collar with a rabies tag at all times. Consult your veterinarian about permanent identification, such as microchipping, or registration with a pet recovery database.

Assemble a Pet Emergency Kit Including:

  • Leash, harness and / or Pet carrier
  • 1-Week supply of food and water with bowls
  • Medications and pet first aid kit
  • Copies of vaccination, medical records and a photo of you and your pet (for identification) in a waterproof container
  • Plastic bags, disinfectants, paper towels and for cats, a litter box
  • Blankets, toys and treats

During an Emergency

  • Keep your pets on hand at the first sign of an emergency. Don't allow your pets to roam loose following a disaster.
  • Call ahead to make arrangements for boarding your pet outside the danger area.
  • Keep your pet emergency kit close at hand.
