Week 9: Take care of your furry family members during a disaster

Yes, man’s best friend also needs an emergency supply kit! (Unless you plan on feeding him your canned tuna.)

If you are like millions of animal owners nationwide, your pet is an important member of your household. 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.

What’s the most important emergency item for your pet? A collar with identification!

Other important items to prepare this week: 
A picture of you and your pet together
Pet sanitation supplies (litter, plastic bags)
Any medicines your pet takes regularly
A pet crate and bedding
