Pet Emergency Preparedness

Emergencies come in many forms: fires, floods, winter storms etc. Even though we are lucky here in Alberta, we do remember lots of pets being evacuated due to the Fort McMurray Fires not that long ago. In the event of extreme weather or a disaster, would you know what to do to protect your pet?

 

Leaving pets out of evacuation plans can put pets, pet owners, and first responders in danger. Even if you try to create a safe place for them, pets left behind during a disaster are likely to be injured, lost, or worse.  

 

Be prepared: make a plan and prepare a disaster kit for your pet.

The CDC link here is a good start. It also tells you how to create an emergency pet preparedness kit.
