Truffle reminds everyone to be #PetPrepared in case of a disaster

Today is National Disaster Pet Preparedness Day.  Earlier this week, we shared some helpful tips from the Hill’s Food, Shelter & Love® program ensuring safety for your pets in case you experience those unfortunate disasters. We encourage you to visit our post to get more information.

We encourage you to set up your own “Pet Emergency Go-Kit” of pet supplies that is readily accessible in an emergency. A Pet Go-Kit should include at a minimum

  • first aid supplies and guide book; 
  • a 3-day supply of pet food in a waterproof container and bottled water; 
  • a safety harness and leash (or a carrier); 
  • waste clean-up supplies; medications and medical records; 
  • a contact list of veterinarian and pet care organizations; 
  • information on your pet’s feeding routine and any behavioral issues; 
  • comfort toys; and 
  • a blanket.
We are purring that you'll never need this kit.

  13. As a witness to the wrath of H. Sandy in NJ, I also recommend choosing a "safe house" - a place where your pets can stay if you can't bring them. It happens.

  16. Always best to be prepared and something we don't usually think about until it's too late. I'd add vaccination records to the list just in case.
