Remember, pets are not allowed in public emergency shelters – make your evacuation plans in plenty of time.

  • Acquire a large carrier and familiarize your pet with the carrier.
  • Do not leave your pet alone during an emergency – decide where you might take your pet it if becomes necessary to evacuate.
  • Make a list of emergency numbers.  This should include your veterinarian and any other individual you may want to contact in case of an emergency.
  • Purchase non-spill water and food bowls.
  • Stock up on pet food and supplies – enough for a week.
