No one likes to think about facing a disaster, but it's entirely possible that you may someday have to face a hurricane, flood, tornado or other natural disaster. That's why it makes sense to have a disaster plan not just for yourself, but for your dog.
The ASPCA has put together a helpful disaster planning document for dog owners that includes these sections:
- Ready Your Dog
- Prepare Your Home
- Locate a Temporary Caregiver (if your dog cannot stay with you after you evacuate)
- Create an Emergency Kit (includes a Pet First Aid Kit)
