Preparing For Your Pet's Safety

Your pet needs to be part of your hurricane family plan of action. If evacuating, keep in mind that most shelters, motels, and hotels will not allow pets. Here are some important items to help you prepare:

  • Make sure your pet's vaccinations are current and have proof they are up to date.
     
  • Be sure to have a current photo of your pet.
     
  • Each pet should have a carrier that is large enough for the animal to stand up and turn around.
     
  • Make sure your pet has the proper ID collar.
     
  • Pack enough food and bottled water for the duration of your evacuation as you should not allow your pet to eat food or drink water from an outside source which may be contaminated.
     
  • Finally, be sure to pack any medications your pet may need along with a leash, collar, muzzle, paper towels, and trash bags.
