During natural disasters, pets are unfortunately left behind because their families didn’t include them in disaster preparation plans. Pets are important members of the family and need to be included in disaster plans, to protect their safety.
Before a hurricane threatens, you can take the time to prepare by reaching out to shelters and hotels to see if they can accommodate you and your pet’s needs. Make sure your disaster kit also includes their food, additional bottled water and medications, too.
For more information to better protect you and your pets this hurricane season, visit the Florida Disaster website.
