WSPA (The World Society for the Protection of Animals) has a downloadable pack of information to help you prepare for your dog’s care in the event of a natural disaster.
This kit will show you what preparations you should undertake in case your dog and you face an emergency situation.
These are things like ensuring you have at least 3 days of food stored for both you and your dogs and that you have a sufficient supply of your dog’s medications, too.
The kit recommends that your dog is able to come to you on command and to practice moving to safe parts of your house in the event of an emergency, like a tornado or hurricane.
All very useful information! Take it from those of us who have faced natural disaster (earthquakes – too many of them!), being prepared gives you peace of mind and results in less stress during very stressful events.
