How To Bug Out With Pets In An Emergency (Video)

To most of us, our pets are family and we would never leave them in a disaster. When disaster strikes, will your pets be ready?

In this video, City Prepping discusses simple steps you can take now to ensure your pet’s safety.

 

Create an emergency kit for your pet

 

Prepare an emergency kit for your pet ahead of time.

  • Purchase a pet carrier for each of your pets (write your pet’s name, your name, and contact information on each carrier).
  • Food and water for at least 2 weeks for each pet
  • For cats: litter box and litter
  • For dogs: plastic bags for poop
  • Medications for at least 2 weeks
  • Medical records, including record of vaccination for rabies and other diseases, prescription medications, and medical history.
  • Sturdy leashes or harnesses
  • Microchip number
  • Contact information (cell phone, work phone, home phone) of the owner and close relative or friends

 

Practice evacuating your pet

 

  • Train your pets to be in their carriers by making it a comfortable place.
  • Practice transporting your pet by taking them for rides in a vehicle similar to one you would be evacuating in. If you do not have a car, make arrangements with neighbors, family, and friends. You can also contact your local government to learn about transportation options during a disaster.
  • Know where your pet might hide when stressed or scared. Practice catching your pet, if needed.
  • For cats, you can practice removing your cat from his/her hiding spot and using your cat’s carrier, a pillowcase, a sturdy box — anything to get your cat quickly out of harm’s way.
  • Have your entire family practice evacuating with your pets so everyone knows what to take, where to find the pets, and where to meet.
