How To Prepare In Case Of An Emergency

Next » « Previous


A bit of forethought can literally save your pet's life in the event of an emergency, as well as decrease anxiety levels.

For instance: think about:

  • Where you will be able to stay with your pet if you are forced to leave your home. Not all emergency facilities are pet friendly. The same with hotels.
  • Just as with your medical needs, think about your pet's medical needs - including a copy of your pet's medical records.
  • It may be wise to keep a few photographs of your pet with your emergency supplies in case you get separated.

The City of New York has created an excellent guide known as "Ready New York For Pets." To access a copy, see: offsite link

NOTE: If you have a home aquarium, homeowners insurance policies do not usually cover damage to personal possessions from an aquarium. If you own an aquarium, do not position it near anything valuable that could be damaged if the tank breaks.
