It's Disaster Preparedness Month!


It's Disaster Preparedness Month!
Across the country, September is Disaster Preparedness Month. And here in South Florida, that means making sure we're ready for the possibility of a hurricane. When storms approach, our local authorities diligently remind us how to prepare. But what about our pets?
Regarding emergency supplies, allot at least two to three gallons of water per pet. Each pet should have at least a week's worth of food and medications on hand before a storm arrives. Cats require at least a week's supply of extra cat litter per cat. A kiddie pool filled with sod can be kept indoors so dogs have a place to answer nature's call without the risk of going outdoors during a storm. If you plan to use a public shelter, bear in mind that Dade County only has two pet friendly shelters, and you must register to use them ahead of time. You can do this at any time by visiting www.miamidade.gov/hurricane or calling 786-331-5354. Pet owners are solely responsible for the care, feeding and walking of their pets while in the shelter. Be sure your pet's vaccinations are up to date, and bring proof of their vaccination status and registration.
With a little forward planning and due diligence, South Floridians can weather the worst of the season - and look forward to our beautiful winters!
