CREATE A PET EMERGENCY KIT
Thousands of pet owners were completely caught off-guard recently when wild fires and mud slides forced evacuations. Many fled in nothing more than their night clothes and had no time whatsoever to gather what was needed to support themselves let alone their furry loved ones.
We’ve all learned a great deal from this experience, including the need for emergency preparedness. It’s imperative that all of us have an emergency kit at the ready, including items for our pets. The National Fire Prevention Association (NFPA) has put out this terrific Pet Emergency Preparedness booklet. Please print it out, put together a kit, and encourage your friends and neighbors to do the same.
