For many, pets are an important part of our family. For their safety and yours, have an emergency plan for their care.
- Keep your pet's license and identification tags current with your telephone number and the number of your out of town contact.
- Make arrangement with neighbors to rescue or care for your pets if you cannot be at home.
- For evacuation: keep your pet on a lease or in a carrying case. Pack supplies that include food, water bowl, blanket and plastic for disposing of feces.
- Plan on how you will care for your pet after evacuation. Pets, in contrast to service animals (such as seeing eye dogs), may not be allowed in shelters because of health regulations.
