Hurricane Preparedness: Preparing Your Pet


The Humane Society has compiled a list of things to prepare your pets before a hurricane. It’s a great read we highly recommend. Some of the bullet points:

  • ID your pet
  • Put together your pet emergency kit.
  • Find a safe space in your home ahead of time.
  • Plan for your pet in case you’re not home.


This is a suggested checklist for your emergency kit:

  • Food supply for 2 weeks
  • Water
  • Carrier or cage
  • Leash
  • Current vaccination paperwork
  • ID collar and rabies papers
  • Medication
  • Manual can opener (not all cans have tabs!)
  • Cat litter, scoop, plastic trash bags
  • Favorite toy or blanket
