According to recent survey by the ASPCA, more than one-third of dog and cat owners don’t have disaster preparedness plans in place for their pets. Make sure this isn’t you.

Just as you would make a disaster kit for yourself and family, make one for your pet that includes medical records and medication, food and water with can openers, leashes, and carriers.

Here’s a list of tips from the ASPCA:

  • Bring pets indoors at the first sign of a storm or other natural event or human disaster . Animals can become disoriented and wander away from home during a disaster.
  • Arrange a safe haven for yourself and your pets in the event of evacuation. Do not leave pets behind.
  • Store an emergency kit—with items such as pet food, bottled water, medical records, a blanket, a flashlight and leashes—as close to an exit as possible.
  • Make sure all pets wear collars and tags with up-to-date identification.
  • Affix a rescue alert sticker to your front door or window to let rescuers know that there are pets inside your home.
  • Choose a designated caregiver to take care of your pet in the event you are unable to do so.
