Keeping Your Pets Safe During an Emergency Situation

Here's what you can do to keep your pets safe during an emergency.

While you probably have an emergency plan for your family, does that plan also take into account your furry-friends?  Pets will require you to take some extra steps during a natural disaster or evacuation event.  Here are some of the things you should do to keep your pets safe during an emergency. Emergency Precautions Natural disasters and other types of emergencies can unfold quickly with very little warning.  This is why it's so important to take precautionary measures now.  For instance, you should make sure that your pets are microchipped and equipped with tags that feature your most updated contact information.  This will ensure your swift reunion in the event that you and your pets are separated during an emergency. Another way to prepare is by creating an emergency care kit for each of your pets.  Here are some of the things that you should include in your kit:
  • important documents (registration forms, shot records, identification information, etc.)
  • pet carrier
  • food and water
  • bedding
  • toys
  • treats
  • medications
Having a kit already made will make it easy to just grab and go during an evacuation situation. Sheltering During an Evacuation If you are forced to evacuate your home, then you should take your pets with you.  While some shelters will offer accommodations for pets, others will require you to house your pets elsewhere.  If you cannot leave your pets with a loved one, then you should contact your local veterinary clinic.  They should have a list of emergency pet boarding facilities.  You can also visit the Human Society's website HERE for more information about sheltering your pet during an emergency. These are some of the steps that you should take to keep your pets safe during an emergency situation.  Want another way to be prepared for a natural disaster or other emergencies?  Then make sure you have the proper personal insurance protection in place.  For assistance with your coverage needs, contact the experts at Fuller Insurance Agency in Los, Angeles, California today.
