  3. Have a list of supplies that you will need in the event you and your pet are evacuated. List of emergency supplies

  4. If you need to evacuate- TAKE YOUR ANIMALS WITH YOU! It is simply too dangerous to leave companion animals unattended during natural disasters. The best way to ensure the safety of your pets is to evacuate with them.

  • Contact your veterinarian for a list of preferred boarding kennels and facilities.

  • Identify hotels or motels outside of your immediate area that accept pets.

  • Ask friends and relatives outside your immediate area if they would be willing to take in your pet.
