If you are asked to evacuate in an emergency situation, have a 72-hour pet emergency kit ready to go along with the rest of your family’s emergency supplies. It should include:
- 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
- First Aid kit
- Grooming supplies
- Paper towels/wet wipes
- Flashlight and spare batteries
- Cat litter and litter box
- If you have a pocket pet like a sugar glider, bonding pouch, pop up kennel or reptarium
- reptiles – pop kennel or reptarium. canned crikets, and vitamens

The most important thing you can do to protect your pets and the rest of your family when the unexpected happens is to plan ahead.
