FEMA has a new press release with evacuation tips for you and your furry, feathered, or scaly friends. Specifically:

  • A secure pet carrier, cage or crate, plus leash and collar or harness for each pet
  • Muzzle (anxiety and stress can cause any pet to bite. A muzzle serves to protect both the pet and other people.)
  • An up-to-date identification tag on your pet’s collar and proof of ownership, such as a picture of you with your pet
  • Veterinary records and medications, such as flea or heartworm treatment, along with emergency contact information
  • One week’s worth of food and water for each pet, including dishes, spoon and a can opener
  • Written feeding and medication instructions, including what NOT to feed your pet
  • Clean-up supplies: paper towels, newspaper, kitty litter with pan and scoop for cats, sealable bags for disposing of waste, wet and dry wipes and hand sanitizers
  • Pet toys, bedding and treats

Have you ever evacuated with your pet(s)? Have any tips to share? Let us know in the comments.
