Hey there, amazing friends and followers of Canine Estates, Inc.! With hurricane season upon us, and the storm heading our way it’s crucial to ensure the safety and well-being of our beloved furry friends. 

We want to share some essential tips and reminders to help you prepare for hurricanes and ensure your pets are taken care of during these challenging times. Here’s what you need to do and have for your pet’s essentials: 

1️⃣ Create an Emergency Plan: Have a detailed plan in place for your pets. Identify a safe place to stay, whether it’s with family, friends, or a pet-friendly shelter. Make sure everyone in your household knows the plan and their roles.

2️⃣ Pack an Emergency Kit: Prepare a pet-specific emergency kit that includes essential supplies such as food, water, medications, a leash, a carrier, identification tags, MICROCHIP AND KEEP INFO UPDATED ON THEM vaccination records, and a comfort item like a blanket or toy.

3️⃣ Update Identification: Ensure your pet’s identification tags and microchip information are up to date. In case you get separated, this will help increase the chances of a reunion.

4️⃣ Secure Your Home: Make sure your home is pet-proofed and secure. Close off any areas where your pets could get injured or escape. Keep important documents, such as ownership papers and medical records, in a waterproof bag.

5️⃣ Stay Informed: Stay tuned to local news and weather updates to stay informed about evacuation orders and emergency shelters. Follow reliable sources for real-time information on hurricane developments.

6️⃣ Keep Calm and Comforting: During the storm, your pets may be scared or anxious. Provide them with a safe and comfortable space, and be there to offer reassurance and comfort. Consider using calming aids recommended by your veterinarian.

7️⃣ Evacuate Early: If an evacuation order is issued, don’t wait until the last minute. Evacuate early to avoid any potential dangers and ensure the safety of both you and your pets.

8️⃣ Stay Together: Whenever possible, keep your pets with you. They rely on you for their safety and well-being. Remember, they are part of your family.

9️⃣ Help Others: Check on your neighbors, friends, and family members to see if they need assistance with their pets. We are stronger together, and lending a helping hand can make a big difference.

🔟 Spread the Word: Share this post with your friends, family, and neighbors to ensure everyone is prepared for the hurricane season. Together, we can create a safer environment for our furry companions.

Remember, being prepared is key to keeping our pets safe during hurricanes. Let’s prioritize their well-being and make sure they are taken care of no matter what comes our way. Stay safe, stay prepared, and stay pawsitive!
