What would you/your pet do during an emergency?
EVACUATING WITH YOUR PET
Think about where you will go with your pet and
how you will get there if you have to leave home
during an, emergency. In planning for an emergency
Arrange for family or friends outside of the affected
area to shelter your pet.
Identify animal-friendly hotels/motels outside
of the affected area. .
Talk with your local veterinarian, boarding kennel,
or grooming facility to see if they can offer safe
shelter for your pet during an emergency.
Create a Go Bag for your pet or service animal
(See Pet Go Bag Checklist).
Practice evacuation plans to familiarize your
pet with the process and increase his/her comfort
Know your pet's hiding places
so you can easily find him/ her during an emergency.
Keep in mind a stressed pet may behave differently
than normal and his/her aggression level may increase.
Use a muzzle to prevent bites. Also be advised
that panicked pets may try to flee.
TIP: Pets in carriers are allowed on MTA subways,
buses, and trains. When an evacuation order is
declared, pets too large for carriers will also
be allowed, provided those animals are muzzled
and controlled on a sturdy leash no longer than
four feet. The City will announce when this policy
is in effect. Bring supplies to clean up after
your animal. Only legal animals will be allowed.
As a reminder, service animals are always allowed.
