CVMF Offers Tips on Emergency Preparedness for Pets

Connecticut Veterinary Medical Foundation on what to do when a hurricane, tornado or other emergency strikes

(Vocus) May 4, 2009 -- The number one reason people refuse to evacuate their homes during an emergency is because they do not want to leave their pets behind. According to Dr. Arnold Goldman, president of the Connecticut Veterinary Medical Foundation (CVMF) and director of the Connecticut State Animal Response Team (CTSART), "The most important action you can take to prepare your animals for an emergency is to have a plan. You may not think a disaster can hit your community, but we know all too well that it can. The primary responsibility for planning for your animals is yours."

Dr. Goldman explains, "In the case of an evacuation, you must take your pets with you. It may be impossible to return for a prolonged period after the disaster occurs. Do not endanger yourself, your family or first responders by staying when ordered to evacuate, or by attempting to re-enter the evacuated area to retrieve your pets. However, if you must evacuate without them, leave enough food and water to last at least two to three days and post a highly visible note in a front window for rescue workers detailing the number and type of pets, as well as where the pets were left."
