A little preparation goes a long way towards reducing the impact of a disaster or emergency on you and your loved ones. It is especially important for pet owners to prepare since there are fewer public resources available to help animals following a disaster. Remember, you are responsible for your pets’ safety and well being—they depend on you.
The term emergency or disaster can encompass anything from a fire in your home to a severe snowstorm to a region–wide chemical hazard. While it is important to be aware of the most likely disasters in your area, a general plan is best.
