Prepare for Disasters

Every part of the world suffers from natural disasters. Planning ahead can not only save
your life, but the life of your precious pet. Here are some helpful tips to consider if you
are a pet owner:

The following article is from: Manatee County Animal Services

"The only way to reduce the devastation of a hurricane is to be prepared - including preparation for your pets. Forty-three percent of U.S. households have pets. Florida has over 80% of its population within 10 miles of the coast. There is no geographical point in Florida that is more than 60 miles from saltwater. Any disaster that threatens humans, threatens animals as well.

Making arrangements for your pets is part of your household disaster planning. If you must evacuate your home, plan for your pet too."
