What do I do with my pet?
Taking care of your pet in an emergency needs to be part of your preparedness plan. Have food, water, sanitation and first aid items for your pet. Make sure your pet has an ID tag or microchip. Develop a buddy system with others to make sure someone is available to care for or evacuate your pets if you are unable to do so. If you must evacuate, take your pets with you if possible. Since animals may not be allowed inside public shelters, plan alternatives.
