Emergency Evacuation Pet Tip

09.07.14 Do not leave your pets behind, take them with you. Arrange for a safe place to go if you have to evacuate. Find friends and relatives outside your area willing to provide you and your pets’ shelter. Locate hotels and inns that accept animals. Check out kennels and boarding facilities. Many vet hospitals board pets. Local animal shelters may provide emergency shelters or foster care as well. List contact information for these safe havens and keep it with the emergency supplies.

  1. I totally agree! I'm in a job that has me traveling around the world living in foreign countries. I've heard horror stories of people being forced to evacuate from some countries that have problems and they have to leave their animals behind. That would kill me to leave my four cats behind in a dangerous situation. As a result, I do not even consider countries that may require an evacuation.
