What to Include in a Pet Emergency Preparedness Kit

We always discuss what’s needed for our families, but we often overlook our pets. June is pet preparation month so now is as good a time as any to take a couple minutes to plan it out.

The list given below should be considered the minimum needed to get your pet out the door and somewhere safe.

If you’ve already built a bug out bag, and I hope you have, then you can simply add some items for your pet and be good to go. If you don’t have any emergency kits, then I suggest you pick one up or build your own as soon as you can.

We have plenty of articles to get you started. Take a look at our article about how to get started prepping.
