 AVMA creates Pet Evacuation Kit for those in path of Hurricane Irma

​With Hurricane Irma bearing down on Florida, the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) has developed a Pet Evacuation Kit to help those in the storm’s path safely account for their pets as they prepare to leave the area.

AVMA’s Pet Evacuation Kit provides a checklist of essential items and tasks that pet owners should include and account for before evacuating. This includes:

  • Food and Medicine
  • First Aid Kit
  • Sanitation
  • Important Documents
  • Travel Supplies
  • Comfort Items

The Pet Evacuation Kit is available along with other disaster preparation resources on the AVMA website at https://www.avma.org/public/EmergencyCare/Pages/Pets-and-Disasters.aspx.
