With the hurricane season starting on June 1, we all can be reminded of what we should do in an emergency or disaster and how to take care of our pet. The ASPCA is a great resource with information on Emergency Pet Preparedness, and you can even get a free Pet Rescue Sticker sent to you, so people will know that you have a pet in your house in case of an emergency.
The director of Disaster Responsive Services for ASPCA says “planning ahead can make all the difference! Be prepared to leave with your pet. Make sure you have a leash, muzzle, and carrier for each one of your pets handy and ready to use. Having the resources to transport your pet safely with you when you have to evacuate is very important”.
