Emergency Preparedness for Pets

For many, their pet is a member of the family and it is important to consider the needs of each pet should an emergency arise. The Ontario SPCA has created a guide for what you may need for your pet during an emergency:

  • A 72 hour food supply, including bowls and a can opener;
  • A 72 hour water supply;
  • Blankets/towels;
  • Toys;
  • Leash, muzzle, harness;
  • Litter pan, litter, plastic bags, and scooper;
  • Pet carrier to allow for easy transport;
  • Medical records, Veterinarian’s name and contact number;
  • Medications and a pet first aid kit;
  • Current photo of your pet along with their name, address, and brief description;
  • Information on your pets feeding schedule, temperament/behaviour, medical concerns;
  • ID tags and Microchip number;
  • Flashlight; and
  • List of boarding facilities or hotels that can accommodate pets
