In Hurricane Sandy’s path? Here’s what to do if you have pets!  »

HSUS has a great post with everything to do, check it out.

Things you can do right now:

  • Put a collar with visible identification on your pets, including indoor-only pets
  • Keep pictures of your pets on hand for identification purposes. Ideally, you should also be in the photo
  • Create a pet emergency kit (see below) and refresh the items every few months
  • Talk to your neighbors about how they can help your pets if you are not at home when disaster strikes
  • Create a list of hotels that allow pets
  • Plan on evacuating about 100 miles inland

This emergency supply kit should include:

  • Three-or-more-day supply of food in airtight, waterproof container, and drinking water
  • Bowls for food and water
  • Current photos and physical description of your pets, including details on markings
  • Medications, vaccination records and pet first aid supplies
  • Comfort items such as a toy and blanket
  • Small garbage bags
  • For dogs include: leash, harness and a sturdy carrier large enough to use as a sleeping area
  • For cats include: litter and litter box and a sturdy carrier large enough for transport

Stay safe, East Coast humans and other animals!!
