Emergencies and evacuations don’t always allow time for you to gather your things.
Have a plan in place for both you AND your pets.
Have a travel bag ready.
Clear bags are best as you can see everything in a pinch.
Spare leads water bowl, poop bags, medications. food, and treats.
Keep important records in a dry safe place, so they’re easy to reach.
Boarding facilities will always require vaccine records.
FidoMingle keeps uploaded pet records all in one place and accessible on ANY device, should you need them in a hurry.
Keep your pet carriers where they are easily accessible, not buried in the garage.
For animal help or questions…..
Reference the list of Southern California animal shelters
should you need one. Or contact your nearest veterinarian for information regarding missing pets or assistance.
Preparing yourself and your family.
It’s always best to have an emergency check off list ahead of time as things can be hurried.
A “need to grab” list.
And have a meeting place picked out, should you lose track of each other.
Creating a survival kit for yourself…
Red Cross has a list of essentials needed in a survival bag for up to seven days.
As we all hope that we should never need to use emergency methods, it’s smart to have them in place.
