Dog to go bag


Most tornadoes can strike suddenly, so preparing to safeguard our pets in advance is crucial. Animals left unprotected during emergencies can face severe risks. When a tornado warning is issued, seek shelter in a secure interior space like a basement or storm cellar, ensuring your pets are with you. For buildings without such areas, move away from windows and doors to the lowest level’s interior room. Have crates ready for all your small animals even those that might be outdoor pets.


To enhance preparedness, consider microchipping your pet for easy reunification, keeping small pets indoors for easier management, practicing placing pets in the safe room, securing cats in a crate during tornado watches, having a photo for identification, and preparing an emergency kit for your pet’s is essentials.


Your pet’s emergency kit should include enough food and water for 72 hours, food and water bowls, basic first aid supplies that are safe for pets, night light, medications, slip lead or collar and leash, whistle, Identification tag, waste disposal bags, and for cats make sure you have a litterbox, litter and a scoop. All of these items can be stored in your safe room ahead of time.
