Vineyards residents have seen powerful storms, even hurricanes. If a storm requires people to evacuate, that means conditions are dangerous for the pets as well. For the safety of the pets, and the peace-of-mind of the humans,  SERVPRO of East Naples shares tips from the Federal Emergency Management Association (FEMA). 

Preparing for Pet Evacuations in Vineyards:

  • Make sure the information on pets' tags is current
  • Fasten tags securely to the collars
  • Consider a microchip for the pet
  • In case you and your pet(s) are separated, have photos of yourself with each pet
  • Locate pet-friendly motels and shelters
  • Lists of all medications and conditions
  • Comfortable and secure carrier for each pet
  • Leash or harness for each pet
  • Copies of all prescription medication

Emergency Kits for Pets:

  • Proof of vaccinations, veterinary records
  • At least a 3-day supply of food and water for each pet
  • First-aid kit for pets
  • Treats and toys, especially favorite ones
  • Comfort objects, such as things that smell like you, thunder-shirts
  • Enough medication for 3 or more days
