Pet Disaster Preparedness from Red Rover
1. Microchip your pets
2. Keep a collar & tag on all cats & dogs
3. Plan a pet-friendly place to stay
Central Nebraska Humane Society Executive Director Laurie Dethloff sat down on Nebraska Central News at 5:30 p.m. to discuss preparing your pet for an emergency.
Dethloff says, in necessary, evacuate with your pet - a lesson learned during Hurricane Katrina. She says microchipping your pet and keeping a current picture with you will help you reunite if separated.
Dethloff suggests keeping a emergency kit with food and water for three to seven days, any medication and your pets' medical records. She says keeping a copy of those records at a separate location is also a good idea.
