June is Pet Preparedness Month

Have you thought about your pets when creating your disaster plan and your emergency kit? Make sure your animals stay safe and remain a loving part of your family by taking the steps below:

• Get a Rescue Alert Sticker - The Rescue Alert Sticker will notify people that pets are inside your home. Place sticker in a visible spot for a rescue worker to see. Include the types and number of pets in the home, the name of your veterinarian and your veterinarian’s phone number. If you have evacuated, write “EVACUATED” across the sticker. https://secure.aspca.org/take-action/order-your-pet-safety-pack
• Find a Place for your Pet - Never evacuate without your pets. Make sure you have a predetermined place you and your pets can go in the case of an evacuation because not all shelter or other designated places of refuge will allow pets.
• Pet Emergency Kit - Along with an emergency preparedness kit for your household, it is also a good idea to create one for your pets. Some items to include are: a pet first-aid kit, enough food and water to last 3-7 days and toys to keep your pet occupied.
