A dog sits next to a first aid kit.

Leaving your pets out of your emergency plans can put you, your pets and first responders in danger. Prepare a disaster kit for your pet(s) so that evacuations can go smoothly for your entire family. Use the following basic pet disaster supply kit checklist to get started, or you can download a more detailed checklist.

  • Name tags and phone numbers for collars and harnesses
  • Leashes, harnesses, gloves and carriers to transport pets safely and securely
  • Water and food for 7-10 days.
  • Supplies like bowls, cat litter and pans, manual can opener, foil or plastic lids for cans
  • 7 to 10-day supply of pet medications
  • Medical records stored in a waterproof container
  • Current photos of your pets in case they get lost
  • Information on feeding schedules, medical conditions, behavior problems, and the name and number of your veterinarian in case you have to board your pets. Don’t forget pet beds and toys!
  • First Aid kit (including large/small bandages with elastic tape, scissors, tweezers, Q-tips, antibiotic ointment, saline eyewash, & hydrogen peroxide)
