When a hurricane is approaching the area where you live, your mind immediately starts to go through the drill: Do we stay or do we go? Where are we going to go? What do we have to do before we leave the house? What do we have to take with us? How long will we be gone?
If you live in the Gulf Coast region or on the Eastern seaboard, no doubt you have experienced the dread and the drama of an approaching tropical storm or hurricane. If you reside in the designated cone of the possible landfall, and you feel vulnerable to the effects of the storm, chances are you are going to evacuate. If you decide that evacuating is the best course of action, then evacuate as early as possible to avoid traffic congestion.
Amidst all the preparation of protecting your property as best as you can and preparing to get yourself and your loved ones to safety, there is one important thing you need to take into consideration: your pets. If it’s not safe for you to remain in your home, it’s not safe for your pets to remain there either. If you leave your pets behind, they may get lost, injured, or worse. Additionally, under no circumstances should you leave your pet chained up outdoors.
When taking your pets into consideration in the event of your evacuation, remember these 5 things:
Evacuating for a storm can be a stressful and scary time for people as well as pets. Planning ahead can make things less stressful for everyone. If your pets become fearful and agitated because of the unfamiliar circumstances and surroundings, they will appreciate your calm presence and the sound of your soothing, familiar voice. You may even find that having your pets nearby is comforting for you too.
