Remember your animals during a disaster! The following is the suggested items for an emergency kit for your animals according to Ready.gov.

  • Food

At least a three day supply in an airtight, waterproof container.

  • Water.

At least three days of water specifically for your pets.

  • Medicines and medical records.
  • Important documents.

Registration information, adoption papers and vaccination documents. Talk to your veterinarian about microchipping and enrolling your pet in a recovery database.

  • First aid kit.

Cotton bandage rolls, bandage tape and scissors; antibiotic ointment; flea and tick prevention; latex gloves, isopropyl alcohol and saline solution. Including a pet first aid reference book is a good idea too.

  • Collar or harness with ID tag, rabies tag and a leash.
  • Crate or pet carrier.

Have a sturdy, safe crate or carrier in case you need to evacuate. The carrier should be large enough for your pet to stand, turn around and lie down.

  • Sanitation.

Pet litter and litter box if appropriate, newspapers, paper towels, plastic trash bags and household chlorine bleach.

  • A picture of you and your pet together.

If you become separated, a picture of you and your pet together will help you document ownership and allow others to assist you. Add species, breed, age, sex, color and distinguishing characteristics.

  • Familiar items.

Familiar items, such as treats, toys and bedding can help reduce stress for your pet.
