I highly encourage everyone to microchip their pets so in the unfortunate event of separation you are more likely to be able to be reunified with them.
Make sure that your pet is up to date on all of their shots.
Make sure that their collar has their ID and license on it.
Keep an updated photo of your pet that you can post on a community board to help increase the chances of reuniting with your pet.
Make sure that you have enough food stored away for your pet in a watertight container to last for at least a few weeks. Pet MRE lasts longer than the conventional pet food giving you a full 5 years before replacement.
Make sure that your pets' medication are all filled.
Keep a Pet Survival Kit available just in case your pet is injured during the hurricane.
Many communities have Pet Friendly Evacuation Centers where you can bring your pet during a hurricane. Most of these places want the owner to stay with their pet. Check ahead of time if your community offers this.
Our 4 legged friends are just as much a part of our family, so making sure that their needs are met is essential.
