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.

ASPCA Sandy Response

It’s been 2 weeks already since Hurricane Sandy devastated so many and I just wanted to give you a brief update and reminder of the important work the ASPCA does in emergency situations like this one. Many people are still in need of assistance. Some are leaving shelters and having to relocate along with their pets. The ASPCA is working to help keep families with pets together and provide transport and support. They’re also helping reunite lost pets with their families after the storm.

As winter sets in, the ASPCA is responding to displaced families in need of supplies and critical veterinary care, too. They’ve distributed thousands of pounds of pet food and cat litter to areas of extreme need and are speeding up the grant approval process so that they can assist shelters and other animal welfare groups affected by Sandy more quickly. For updates on the ASPCA’s response to Sandy and its repercussions, please keep an eye on the ASPCA blog and follow the ASPCA on Twitter.

You can also help support their vital work with a donation if you are able. If you would like to contribute to their disaster relief fund, you can make a gift here. Every cent will go to ASPCA disaster relief efforts.

Also take this time to make sure you AND your pet are prepared in case a disaster or emergency should happen. The ASPCA has a comprehensive and invaluable Disaster Preparedness Checklist for Families with Pets and you can request a Free Emergency Pet Alert Sticker so responders know to look for pets at your home.

You can also get prepared and help support ASPCA at the same time by purchasing one of their Emergency Ready Pet Survival Kits to keep in your home or give as a gift.
