Pet Care in a Disaster
By Cathy Pearl
  

1     When there is a disaster like a hurricane, many people leave their homes. Some drive to hotels or to friends' houses that are away from the area that is in danger. Other people don't have any other place to go and go to a shelter. But the country has also learned that many people will not leave their homes if they have to leave their pets behind.
 
2     For some people, a pet is an important part of the family. A pet is not something that can be left behind because of a disaster. That is why it is important to have plans in place so you can make sure that your pet is safe.
 
3     Not everyone lives in a place where hurricanes hit. This doesn't mean you shouldn't be ready for an emergency. Your street may be blocked, or a family member may have an emergency. These could mean you can't get home. Who would take care of your pet if you weren't there?
 
4     Find a trusted neighbor and give him or her a key to your house. Make sure the neighbor knows your pet. Also make sure he or she knows where the pet might hide in your house. Your neighbor may not have time to look for your pet in an emergency.
 
5     If people must evacuate, make sure your neighbor can take your animal along. Set up a place to meet before an emergency happens. Also, make an emergency kit that your neighbor can take.
