Pet Parent Emergency Preparedness + FREE Pet Rescue Alert Window Sticker

Some posts may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.


As pet parents, it’s our job to know what to do in an emergency. Are you prepared? This month ASPCA is helping us to get prepared, with tips and information for disaster preparedness month.

None of us likes to think about bad things happening, but it’s important to take the time now to make certain that you and your furry family members have everything you need in case of a life-threatening emergency. One of the best ways to do this is to create a disaster prep safety kit with all of the necessary supplies should any type of disaster affect your community.

To help you create your home’s emergency kit and keep your pets safe, the ASPCA has provided an excellent checklist of items.


In addition to creating a pet emergency first aid kit, you can also TAKE THE DISASTER PLEDGE and receive a free window sticker that alerts rescue personnel that you have a pet at home.

Donate to WWF for Mother's Day

Moms around the world take remarkable steps to protect, nurture and raise their young. Orangutan mothers stay with their young for six to seven years, teaching them where to find food and how to build a sleeping nest. A group of female African elephants will help a calf to its feet after birth and show the baby how to nurse.

Here are two easy ways to thank the mothers in your life while supporting wildlife conservation:

  1. Give a Mother’s Day Gift for Wildlife: Show Mom that you care! Make a donation of any amount to support World Wildlife Fund’s global conservation efforts, and send an e-card to Mom to announce your gift. She will love knowing that your donation helps protect species and wild places around the world.
  2. Send Free WWF Mother’s Day E-cards: Tell your mother, grandmother, sister, or friend that you care about her and nature by sending Mother’s Day e-cards. They are a fun and eco-friendly way to express your love and appreciation for all that she does!

More Ways to Celebrate Be Kind to Animals Week:

Adopt a pet from a shelter or rescue 

Every year, an estimated 3.7 million animals must be euthanized at our nation’s shelters because they could not be adopted into loving homes. Help animals find a second chance at happiness by adopting your next pet from your local shelter or rescue group. American Humane Association has pet adoption tips to find the animal companion that’s right for you and develop a bond that will last a lifetime.

Take care of your pet

Pets are like children who never grow up. They need you to help keep them healthy and safe throughout their lives. Keep your animal’s vaccinations up-to-date. Make sure he’s wearing proper identification. Take your pet to the veterinarian regularly. Know what it takes to be a responsible pet owner.

Appreciate wildlife

All animals deserve to be treated humanely — family pets and animals in the wild. Create an inviting space in your yard and garden for butterflies, hummingbirds and other creatures. If wildlife comes too close to home, look for ways to coexist with animals or to protect your property humanely.

Report animal abuse

Animal cruelty and abuse is not only tragic for animals, but also an indicator that other forms of abuse such as domestic violence could be happening. If you see something that looks suspicious — a dog chained in your neighbor’s yard that looks underfed, a child putting a cat in a box and kicking it around the yard — don’t hesitate. Let someone know.
