Disaster prep checklist for pet owners

Protect your pets from the unexpected with our emergency preparation tips.

Time for a checkup

Make sure that important protective devices are updated and ready to go at all times. Remember to regularly:

  • Update pet tags and microchip information
  • Check fire and carbon monoxide alarms
  • Perform an annual fire extinguisher inspection
  • Locate pet hiding spots

    During an evacuation, you want to be able to locate pets quickly. Make a list of where your pets tend to hide when startled.

    Common hiding spots include

  • Under the sofa
  • In the closet
  • Under the bed
  • On kitchen chairs under the table
  • In open boxes and baskets
  • Build a pet emergency kit to grab and go

    Your emergency kit should include:

  • 5-day supply food, water & meds
  • Proof of current vaccinations
  • Litter box and waste bags
  • Collar with current tags
  • Leash, rope & crate
  • Protect your four-legged friend with pet insurance
