EMergency Preparedness


Disaster can strike at any time. When it does, it is important that all your family, including your pets, are prepared.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

  • Emergency evacuations can be extended for days or even weeks. Therefore, you should always be prepared to take your pets with you.

  • Evacuation kennels fill up quickly. Arranging a place that can take you pet, such as family or friends, is recommended.

  • Your pet should be current on vaccinations in the event they have to be housed at an evacuation kennel. This will reduce the risk of disease and illness for both your pet and other animals.

  • Make sure your pet is licensed and has identification such as a microchip and id tag, in the event you are separated during an evacuation. This will improve the chances of being reunited quickly.

  • Register your pets with our Pet Emergency Registry. This list will be used during an emergency to help first responders identify residence that have pets.
