Pet Pause: Being prepared for severe weather


by Natalie Sparacio & Dolores Glytas

WAKE UP WISCONSIN (WAOW)--  First and Foremost: If  you evacuate, Take Your Pets!  Once you leave, you have no way of knowing how long you may be away.

All pets should have Identification --- Tags, Microchip.

Have carriers ready w/pet's current information attached current photos, description of pet, medical records in case of separation. Have harness and leashes ready.

 As disaster approaches keep pets inside in a room where you can grab them and emergency supplies fast!   

Find a safe place ahead of time: contact hotels out of your area for their pet policies. Check with family or friends to stay with along with your pets.

Incase you are not home start making arrangements well in advance with a trusted neighbor to take care of pets.
