Disaster Planning

Consider your pets when preparing your disaster plan. If you are a pet owner your disaster/emergency plan must include your pets.
Being prepared can save their lives. If you must evacuate your home, always take your pets with you.
But remember pets may not be allowed in public emergency shelters.
