All of emergency preparedness comes BEFORE a disaster strikes, and preparing to evacuate with your pet is no different.
When it comes to making a plan for evacuating with pets, make sure you CALL SHELTERS AHEAD OF TIME (*hint hint* part of your preparedness place) to see what documentation they require to allow your pet in with you (vaccination records, adoption papers, etc). If you have a medical service dog, all shelters are required by law to allow them in. However “regular” pets don’t have this blanket entry so it’s important to know the requirements ahead of time.
