Planning for Pets in an Emergency


 Just like your other whanau members, animals need an emergency survival kit. 

Think about the basics:  Food, Water, Warmth

Think about having two kits- one for home, and one if you need to evacuate with your pets: if it's not safe for you, it's not safe for your animals

Home kit: things you may need if you are isolated at home for three days 

Getaway kit: Portable and lightweight items you can take with you in a hurry 

Think about medicines, a blanket or bedding and sanitation (litter box, poo bags etc).
