Pet Emergency Planning
It is time to think about developing an emergency plan for your pet. This is extremely important because most shelters are not pet friendly during disasters.
Options for Pet Evacuation:
Long before a disaster happens, make a plan on possible places where your pet should be evacuated to, during an emergency.
- Ideally, you may plan to have your pet evacuated to a friend who is pet-friendly.
- Alternatively, you may also arrange for a pet-friendly hotel.
- The other option is check whether there is a pet-shelter within your city.
Besides planning where the pet should be kept, you should have some photos and records of your pet ‘s vaccination at a place where you can easily reach it. Without that, you may find it tough to recover your pet after a disaster. It is important to know that a pet without vaccination can be a danger to other pet in a shelter.
