Because we live in an area that is prone to certain natural catastrophes, such as hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes and floods– we need to prepare our families, including our pets for the worst.
Do not leave your pet behind in an emergency. If conditions are too dangerous for you, they are too dangerous for your pet.
If emergency officials recommend that you stay in your home, it’s crucial that you keep your pets with you. Keep your emergency kit and supplies close at hand. Your pets may become stressed during the in-house confinement, so you may consider crating them for safety and comfort.
