Taking Care of Your Own Pets
YOu must be prepared and be able to help yourself before you help others. Everyone should have a small disaster kit located in their own home that contains essential items that you may need in times of a disaster (flashlights, medical record, first aid kit, batteries, etc.). You must also prepare for your own pets in the event of a disaster. A small disaster pack for your pets will help reduce stress, time and energy if a disaster strikes.

It's important to find people or facilities outside of your residential area that may be able to take your pets during a disaster. Ask friends and family if they are willing to care for your pets before a disaster occurs. Locate boarding shelters and hotels in and around your area. Keep those numbers in an accessible area, so that when a disaster strikes you can call them quickly.
