Emergency Preparedness for Animals
If you are like millions of animal owners nation
-wide, your pet is an important member of your
household. The likelihood that you and your
animals will survive an emergency such as a fire or
flood, tornado or terrorist attack depends largely
on emergency planning done today. Some of the
things you can do to prepare for the unexpected,
such as assembling an animal emergency supply
kit and developing a pet care buddy system, are
the same for any emergency. Whether you decide
to stay put in an emergency or evacuate to a safer
location, you will need to make plans in advance
for your pets. Keep in mind that what's best for
you is typically what's best for your animals.
