Hurricane Season is Here!
Harris County Office of Homeland Security & Emergency Management encourages residents to review their family’s emergency plan and ensure they have a plan for their pets as well.
With hurricane season underway, your pet emergency kit should include:
Food – A seven-day supply of food in an airtight, waterproof container.
Water – At least a seven-day supply of water specifically for your pets.
Medicines and medical records.
Important documents – Registration information, adoption papers and vaccination documents. Talk to your veterinarian about microchipping and enrolling your pet in a recovery database.
First aid kit – Cotton bandage rolls, bandage tape and scissors; antibiotic ointment; flea and tick prevention; latex gloves, isopropyl alcohol and saline solution. Including a pet first aid reference book is a good idea too.
Collar or harness with ID tag, rabies tag and a leash.
Crate or pet carrier – Have a sturdy, safe crate or carrier in case you need to evacuate. The carrier should be large enough for your pet to stand, turn around and lie down.
Sanitation – Pet litter and litter box if appropriate, newspapers, paper towels, plastic trash bags and household chlorine bleach.
A picture of you and your pet together – If you become separated, a picture of you and your pet together will help you document ownership and allow others to assist you. Add species, breed, age, sex, color and distinguishing characteristics.
Familiar items – Treats, toys and bedding can help reduce stress for your pet.
If you will are evacuating, identify a location to take your pet. Keep in mind that disaster shelters for people may not be open to pets. Find hotels with pet-friendly policies and ask relatives or friends if they can house you and your pet. Also, be sure that your pet sitter or dog walker knows what to do in case of an emergency.
