- Always have a collar with ID tag, city license tag and rabies tag on the pet.
- Proof of current shots and health records in a waterproof container such as a freezer bag.
- Current photo of pet. When ever possible microchip pet for proof of ownership and possible reunion if seperated.
- Food and water bowls with enough food and water for three days. Remember to keep the food in a watertight container.
- Pet carrier with bedding
- Plastic bags to dispose of pet droppings and other waste
- Manual can opener for canned food
