Many families prepare plans to protect themselves
in case of an emergency or natural disaster. However, some may forget to
include their pets-but being prepared could help save many animal lives.
1. Have a safe place to take your pets. Check hotels and motels for their pet acceptance policies. Ask friends and relativesabout sheltering your pet. Also check boarding facilities and, as a last resort, animal shelters.Planning will enable you to evacuate with your pets quickly and safely. The single most important thing you can do to protect your pets in a disaster is to take them with you if you evacuate.
