An Emergency Pet Plan can reduce stress for you and your pet during an emergency. Here are some things to think about when you're making your plan.
How will you assemble and transport your pets?
Where will you go and what will you bring?
What are your pet's stressors and how can you calm them?
Is your pet friendly with people and animals?
Does your pet have food and medication that require refrigeration?
When planning, be sure to create an emergency pet friendly contact list that includes hotels, kennels, shelters, friends and family outside of your community. This contact list can come in handy if you ever need to find a safe place for your pet to stay on short notice.
