June is pet preparedness month. As you prepare for emergencies, make sure you have a plan for Fluffy and Fido, too. If sudden emergencies or storms arise, evacuation or sheltering will be less stressful for you and your family, including your pets if you have a plan in place.
You may need to evacuate quickly, so having all the pet supplies you need and a safe place for your pets to ride out the storm will make them more comfortable. Talking with your vet or friends who have pets can give you some ideas and advice on how to plan for these emergencies.
The 2021 hurricane season has officially begun so please take some time to consider what your pet will need if you must leave or if you decide to stay and shelter in place.
