September 14 – Preparedness for Pets Day

As part of this year’s National Preparedness Month, each day in September is dedicated to a particular preparedness theme. The theme for Sunday, September 14, is planning for animals in disasters.

It’s a good time to develop a disaster plan for your animals. The AVMA’s Saving the Whole Family Brochure, available in English and Spanish, has resources and tips on creating emergency kits, and disaster checklists and plans.  Check out the AVMA’s Disaster Preparedness and Pets video.  You might also want to download and complete the AVMA’s Animal Emergency Contact Cards  for a wallet-sized reference of important phone numbers for your animals.
