Keep Your Pet Safe During an Emergency

Keep Your Pet Safe During an Emergency Feb 2021

Emergencies can happen at any time. Here are some tips on how to ensure your pet stays safe in the event of an emergency:

  1. Use a microchip with up-to-date contact information.
  2. Put a pet rescue decal on your door or window to let first responders know that a pet may be trapped inside.
  3. Know where your pet likes to hide when afraid or anxious. This can help you find them faster.
  4. Have a pet-friendly place in mind to go in case you need to leave your home during an emergency. Not all disaster relief places allow pets.
  5. Carry a hard copy picture of your pet in the event of separation.
  6. Take a pet carrier or crate with you for transport and safe keeping.
  7. Have a pet emergency kit handy in your car or home.

Your pet emergency kit should include:

  • Basic first aid supplies
  • Week long supply of bottled water and pet’s food
  • Safety harness and leash
  • Waste clean up supplies
  • Medications and copy of pet’s medical records
  • List of veterinarians and pet hospitals
  • List of pet’s feeding routine and any behavioral issues
  • Comfort items such as a blanket or favorite toy
