A hurricane approaching can be stressful and terrifying for all of us...including our furry family members. Me and Scarlet just went to batten down our shore house and with the coastal areas being evacuated, it is so frightening as we worry not only about our homes and safety, but also our pets. Please think good thoughts for our shelter friends that are caring for many, many animals in the face of this. A few things to think about as Sandy approaches....
-Have plenty of food, bottled water, extra leashes or harnesses and medication for your pet if he/she requires it.
-Have your vet's number plugged into your cell phone just in case.
-Note that God forbid you have to evacuate, some human shelters do not take animals, so finding a relative or friend OR a pet friendly hotel is a good idea before a storm hits. www.petswelcome.com usually has great information regarding where to go with your pet.
-It's good to see that pets will be allowed in cabs and on the subway for those leaving NYC.
-If you are nervous, your pet will be as well. Try and be calm and soothing.
-If you think there is any chance you may get stuck at work, or a dufferent location, choose a designated caregiver that you trust with your pets or your house key that is close by.
-It's never too late to get a microchip. Make sure name tags are up to date.
-Take a recent photo of your pet if you don't have one.
-NEVER let your pet leave your house unattended even if they usually "just go in the yard"...Pets can panic at loud noises and run.
-Flameless candles and flashlights are better than real candles in a disaster. They are less likely to cause a fire especially if your pet knocks something over.
-Our website's home page www.wdhafm.com has a hurricane sandy preparedness page with updates etc.... www.aspca.org is also helpful. Keep it tuned to DHA for updates......
Be safe my NJ friends....we are all riding this storm out together. Hold your fur babies close and think good thoughts for our shelter pets and volunteers.
