Stay safe and remember to include your pets in your emergency planning as well.
It’s always good to be prepared for emergencies – and the recent weather extremes and devastating earthquake in Haiti are valuable reminders of that.
That’s why, regardless of the particular weather or geological risks in your area, having an emergency kit for your pet is always a good idea. Make sure to be prepared, practice and consistently update your disaster plan with your family.
Check out the County of San Diego Animal Services’ suggestions for a Pet Disaster Plan. Items like leashes, a collar and a week’s supply of food are must-haves if you ever get stuck in an emergency situation.
