Pet Safety Tips During Hurricane Season In Boca Raton, Florida

Have A Plan In Place

The first step in protecting your pets during hurricane season is to have a plan in place. This includes knowing where you will go in the event of an evacuation and how you will transport your pets.

In addition, make sure to have a pet emergency kit ready to go in case of an evacuation. This should include food, water, medication, and any other supplies your pet may need. It’s also a good idea to have a current photo of your pet in case they do become lost.

Keep Your Pets Indoors

During a hurricane, it’s important to keep your pets indoors at all times. Strong winds and heavy rain can be dangerous for animals, and they may become frightened and try to escape.

Microchip Your Pets

Microchipping your pets is a simple and effective way to ensure that they can be identified and returned to you if they become lost during a hurricane. Make sure to keep your contact information up to date with the microchip company so that you can be reached if your pet is found.

Have A Plan For Large Animals

If you have large animals, such as horses or livestock, it’s important to have a plan in place for their safety during a hurricane. This may include moving them to a designated safe location or making sure they have enough food and water to last through the storm.

Stay Informed

Stay informed about the latest hurricane updates and evacuation orders in your area. This will help you make the best decisions for your pets and ensure their safety. You can sign up for emergency alerts from your local government or follow reliable sources on social media for updates.

Prepare For Power Outages

Power outages are common during hurricanes, so it’s important to be prepared. Make sure to have enough food and water for your pets in case you lose power. You may also want to have a backup plan for keeping your pets cool if the air conditioning goes out.

Be Cautious After The Storm

After the storm has passed, it’s important to be cautious when letting your pets outside. There may be debris or other hazards that could harm them. Keep them on a leash and supervise them at all times.

What To Do If You Need to Evacuate With Your Pets

If you need to evacuate your home with your pets, here are some important steps to follow:

  • Bring your pet emergency kit with you.
  • Make sure your pets are wearing identification tags.
  • Keep your pets on a leash or in a carrier at all times.
  • If you are unable to bring your pets with you, make sure to leave them in a safe, secure area of your home with plenty of food and water.
