Make sure you have extra food and water for your pets in your hurricane kit. You should have at least 5 days worth of food and water with bowls or dishes.
Have a copy of any medical records available and don’t forget to have their daily medications available.
If your pet is not microchipped, make sure to do so before any hurricanes. Microchipping your pet allows animal services and veterinarians a way to find your contact information and return your pet to you if they are lost.
Keep proper identification on your pets at all times – collars should have a a tag with a phone number or address or both.
Have a cat carrier available to transport your cat in case of evacuation. Have leashes or harnesses available for your dog.
Make yourself aware of pet friendly shelter in your area.
Have recent photos of your pet available to you to aid in identifying them in an emergency situation.
If your dog or cat has any special requirements for bedding, make sure to have extra. It also is a good idea to keep comfort items for that pet ready to go.
