How to Prepare for an Emergency
Everyone in America should prepare for an emergency by building an emergency supply kit customized to meet the family's or individual's personal needs.
Plan your evacuation strategy and don't forget your pets.
Have a current photograph
Make sure that your pets vaccinations are current. Pet shelters may require proof of vaccines.
Keep a collar with identification on your pet and have a leash on hand to control your pet.
Have an appropriate-sized pet carrier for each animal. Carriers should be large enough for the animal to stand and turn around.
Specialized pet shelters, animal control shelters, veterinary clinics, friends and relatives out of harm's way are potential refuges for your pet during a disaster.
