What happens with your pets during a Natural Disaster or Emergency?

By
Real Estate Agent with Prudential Damiano Realty

 

We've all seen examples of natural disasters that can strike at any time. Whether it be forest fires wreaking havoc in California or the flooding problems that we experience in North Jersey, it's important to have a plan of action for the family of course, but it's also important to include the family pet(s) in that plan. Knowing ahead of time what is needed and where you can take your pet should the need arise can prevent potential heartache in the future.

Liz Gruen, owner of Kamp Kanine in Little Falls  NJ has offered some helpful tips to pet owners helping them plan for any emergency situations. 1) Make sure your pets carry proper identification. Tags on collars are useful but having your pet micro chipped is better. 2) Contact your towns police or fire department to find out about their emergency operation plan - specifically how it relates to pets. 3) Have an emergency "toolkit" for your pet including proper carriers, leases, food and water for three days, bowls, litter, medications, your Vet's phone number, and a recent photo of your pet for identification purposes.

Bottom line is this, if you are proactive and have a plan in place before an emergency situation happens, both you and your pet have a much better chance of being re-united safely and happily when things begin to get back to normal.
