No matter which part of the world you live in, natural disasters can wreak havoc in your area. It’s nature’s doing, and we don’t have a say in it. What we can do is to prepare in case disasters strike. We can prepare for their arrival so we can be safe. We can reinforce our homes so we can stay there until the sun comes up again, or we can evacuate to a safer place. We do everything to minimize the damage to our properties and, more importantly, prevent deaths and accidents.
For pet owners like us, those steps aren’t complete. We need to do more because our furry—or maybe scaly!— friends are depending on us for survival. And in cases of disasters, there’s a chance that they could be separated from us.
That is why we need to create a plan to make sure our dogs, cats, bunnies, reptiles (or whatever else we have) are protected during natural disasters. We should make sure that they have food and water, and adequate and safe place during emergencies. And we also need to make sure they can be reunited to us.
Create a pet emergency plan. You never know when you will need it.
