Remember, if you must evacuate do not leave your pets behind to fend for themselves.
Keep a Disaster Kit available for you and your pet. Your pet's kit should have the following items.
Medications, immunization records and a first aid kit.
Sturdy leashes, muzzles, harnesses, carriers or cages to transport pets safely. Carriers should be large enough for the pet to stand comfortably, turn around and lie down. Include blankets or towels for bedding and warmth.
Current photos of your pets in case they get lost.
Food, drinking water, bowls, cat litter / pan and can opener.
Information on feeding schedules, medical conditions, behavior problems and the name and number of your veterinarian.
Pet beds and toys, if easily transportable.
If you must drop your pet off at a housing facility ensure they have good contact phone numbers. Include phone numbers for family or friends out of the area in case the facility is not able to contact you. You may have to stay somewhere for an extended period of time and be unable to contact the facility where your pet is located.
