Hurricane Season is Here, How Do We Prepare Our Pets?

Monday, July 26, 2021
posted by Jim Murphy

It’s hurricane season and we have to keep our pets in mind when it comes to evacuation procedures.  How do we prepare our pets for hurricanes?

Before the Hurricane:

  • Make sure that your pets are current on their vaccinations. Pet shelters may require proof of vaccines.
  • Have a current photograph of your pet.
  • Keep a collar with identification on your pet and have a leash on hand to control your pet.
  • Have a properly-sized pet carrier for each animal – carriers should be large enough for the animal to stand and turn around
  • Plan your evacuation strategy and don’t forget your pet! Specialized pet shelters, animal control shelters, veterinary clinics and friends and relatives out of harm’s way are ALL potential refuges for your pet during a disaster.

Pack a supply kit and have these items close at hand.

  • Proper identification including immunization records
    � Ample supply of food and water
    � A carrier or cage
    � Medications
    � Muzzle, collar and leash

Remember, your pet’s count!
