Caring for Pets and Livestock During an Emergency
Emergencies can happen. It helps to have a plan in place for pets or animals you take care of.
Put together an emergency kit with pet food, water, medications, records and a first aid kit.
If you take care of livestock, plan for any trailers, food or halters.
Have a list of kennels that can watch animals if they can't go to a shelter with you.
Make sure your pet's ID tags are up to date and attached to their collar.
If you have to leave animals behind, put up a sign at your home.
