Pets: Fairfax Prepares Day 1
Posted 11:42 a.m.
(First of 30 ideas as part of a preparedness campaign this September. Learn more.)
Those of us with pets love them. They are part of our family.
When a disaster strikes, such as a flood or tornado, we need be ready to take proper care of and plan for our dogs, cats and other pets.
In an ongoing emergency survey right now, only 13 percent of respondents said they have made preparedness kits for their pets. Let’s work as the whole community to improve that percentage.
- Food and water for at least three days
- Medications and medical records
- Cat litter box and litter
- Sturdy leashes, harnesses, and carriers
