Lost Pet Preparedness Tips

Lost Pet Preparedness Tips

Pets are more likely to get lost during an emergency situation or weather disaster such as a tornado, wildfire, or hurricane. Everyone in the path of these disasters should take necessary precautions and prepare their family for the worst-case scenario. The risk of losing pets is often forgotten, until it is too late. To ensure a safe return, check out these lost pet preparedness tips!

Prepare Against Lost Pets

Before a disaster hits, check with local shelters, hotels and motels to see if they are pet friendly, and what their policies are.

During a disaster, the key to keeping your pets safe is to always bring them with you. Use a pet carrier or crate, packed with emergency supplies such as: a blanket, leash, litter box, bottled water and food with serving dishes and any medications. It is important to make sure all animals are wearing collars with proper tag identification and up-to-date information.

Lost A Pet While Evacuating?lost pet preparedness tips

While evacuating your home, pets may panic and easily run out an open door. Make sure all pets are wearing a collar with up-to-date identifying information, and possibly a microchip. If your pet is missing, hang signs around your neighborhood and call the local animal control and Humane Society to see if were located.

Found A Lost Pet?

You may be able to help a family to reunite with a lost pet. If you find a unfamiliar dog, check their tag if they come when called. Cats can be more difficult and you may need to catch them. Alert your local animal control, veterinarians, or Humane Society about any pets you found. Most will scan found pets for a microchip free of charge.
