如果你撤离,把你的宠物

第一个数字:如果它是不适合你的安全,这是不是你的宠物是安全的。你不知道还要多久你就会面积被拒之门外的方式,你可能无法-或允许,回去你的宠物。宠物留在灾难可以很容易受伤,丢失或死亡。请记住,制定计划为所有的宠物;在自然灾害中,灾害预案野生或户外的猫马匹and动物农场can be lifesavers.

Pledge to Bring Your Pet With You When a Disaster Strikes

Contact hotels and motels外面你的眼前的地方,发现他们是否接受宠物。询问在数量,规模和种类的任何限制。询问是否“无宠物”政策将在紧急情况下豁免。保持方便的动物友好的地点列表,和你认为你可能要离开你的家提前打电话预约,尽快。如需帮助识别宠物友好住宿,看看这些网站:

Make arrangements with friends or relatives.问问你的邻近地区以外的人,如果他们将你和你的宠物,或只是你的宠物,如果有必要可以栖身之所。如果你有一个以上的宠物,你可能需要安排在不同的地点安置他们。

The COVID-19 pandemic has made seeking alternate housing arrangements more complicated. Access to reliable testing is still patchy. That said, if you and the people you hope to shelter with are able to be tested, it may provide some protection in case you need to share a space. You can also try to practice social distancing within the space you’re sharing.

考虑一个狗窝或兽医办公室。Make a list of boarding facilities and veterinary offices outside your immediate area that are open and might be able to shelter animals in disaster emergencies (make sure to include their 24-hour telephone numbers).

请与您当地的动物收容所。Some shelters may be able to provide foster care or shelter for pets in an emergency. But keep in mind that shelters have limited resources and are likely to be stretched during a local emergency; check outside your immediate area as well.

Plan for your pet in case you're not home

In case you're away during a disaster or evacuation order,安排提前做好对你信任的人把你的宠物and meet you at a specified location. Be sure the person is comfortable with your pets and your pets are familiar with them. Give your emergency caretaker a key to your home and show them where your pets are likely to be (especially if they hide when they're nervous) and where your disaster supplies are kept.

如果你有一个宠物保姆,他们可以提供帮助。讨论的可能性大大提前。

The electricity goes out

If you're forced to leave your home because you've lost electricity, take your pets with you to a pet-friendly hotel while following public health guidance. If it's summer, even just an hour or two in the sweltering heat can be dangerous. If you stay at home during a summer power outage, check to see if your local emergency management office has opened pet-friendly cooling centers in the area.

如果是冬天,不要被你的宠物的皮毛大衣被愚弄;它是不是安全离开他们在没有暖气的房子。
