Pet Protection for our Fur Babies
Pet Protection should be on top of our list for our fur babies especially when we leave them out at home when we go to work or just when we are out. This protection will surely save the lives of our furry companions.
From making sure your pet is properly tagged to checking your smoke detectors regularly, here are the best ways to prepare for a fire emergency and have pet protection.
Buy a pet-rescue alert sticker.
These stickers are a lifesaver in a fire because they tell rescue workers what pets live inside your home. Make the sticker visible by placing it near or on your front door. It should include the types of animals inside as well the name and number of your vet.
Make sure your pet is easily identifiable.
If your pet bolts during the fire, how will she and get back to you? If your dog or cat is wearing a collar and tags up-to-date identification information — including their name, your name, your address and phone number — it’s much easier to locate you in the aftermath of an emergency.
Know where to find your BFF.
A moment’s notice may be all you have in an emergency, so make sure you’re aware of all the places your pets like to hide because you may need to find them and evacuate quickly.
Know your vet’s contact info.
In the event that your pet’s injuries are more severe, it’s smart to keep the phone number and address of a local animal hospital handy.
Practice routes of escape.
Make sure you’ve got an emergency plan —identify points of quick exit in your home — and do a dry run with your pet.
Keep leashes and emergency kit near an exit.
Place items you might need in an emergency —such as your leash or cat carrier — where you can quickly and easily get to them.
