June: National Disaster Preparedness Month for Animals

Natural disasters occur all over the world, and whether it be a earthquake, flash flood, tornado or hurricane, you will need to make extra arrangements to insure your pet’s safety.

The first and most important thing to do is to be totally prepared before the disaster happens. Some disasters we have plenty of notice when they may possibly occur while others come with little or no warning at all.

If the disaster does not require you to evacuate, have a designated “safe” place in your home where your family and your pet can comfortably stay during the storm.

If evacuation is necessary do so immediately. If you wait until you are asked to leave you may not be able to take your pet with you.
