Pet Care in Emergencies

Preparing ahead for emergencies for all the members of your family—both human and animal—will give you peace of mind. Check out these tools to get started preparing today.

Be aware of after-hours veterinary clinics. Sometimes illnesses and emergencies happen outside of business hours, so keep a list of after-hours emergency clinics on hand, like this one from Pets in the City Magazine.

Place a rescue alert sticker on your home. These stickers, recommended by the ASPCA, alert first responders that there are pets in your home. That way, they won’t be overlooked in an emergency.


Put together rescue kits. Keeping a few days’ supplies on hand will ensure you have what your pet needs for the time following an emergency. You’ll find free lists for pet 72-hour kits on the Pets in the City Magazine website.
