Plan, prepare and protect your pet before, during and after an emergency

Pets bring us so much love and happiness, whether making us laugh with their zoomies or cuddling up to us when we’re sad. In times of emergency, they are also dependent on us.

May is National Pet Month and a great opportunity to consider plans for protecting your pet during an emergency. By making simple preparations now, you can ensure your pet’s safety, health and protection during any emergency.  

Make a plan

  • Have an evacuation plan for your pet
  • Develop a buddy system
  • Have your pet microchipped  

Build a kit for your pet
Include items like food, water and medicine, first aid items, collar with ID tag and a harness or leash.

Stay informed
