Polls have shown that too many owners don’t have disaster plans in place, haven’t microchipped their pets, and don’t know what they would do with their pets in an evacuation. September is National Preparedness Month, so follow these tips to make sure you have a plan in place for your pet in case a flood, storm, hurricane, or other disaster strikes.
- 1.Make sure your pet is tagged and microchipped.Pets should wear collars with tags and have microchips implanted with up-to-date contact information.
- 2.Make arrangements with friends and family who can take your pet during an emergency.
- 3.Identify the location of nearby emergency shelters and pet-friendly hotels.Your local veterinarian or animal shelter will likely have this information.

Here are a few of our favorite inspiring Happy Tails! Visit aspca.org/news to read the full stories.
- 1.BlueOne of 77 dogs rescued in a multi-state dog fighting raid in March 2013, Blue was chained to a stake in the ground, exposed and shivering in blizzard-like conditions, when the ASPCA rescued him.
- 2.LittleWhen Little was discovered in a basement in Queens, New York, she was so emaciated that her bones were sticking out. Her coat was covered in urine and feces and she couldn’t walk. What’s worse, the basement had been so dark—and Little’s life so isolated—that the sweet dog was terrified of many sights, sounds and movements.
- 3.CloverOn a cold day in February, Clover was rescued from horrific abuse in the Far Rockaway neighborhood of New York City. It was soon apparent that seven-year-old Clover was suffering from a whole host of medical issues including a heart murmur, tumor, nodules, and a history of bladder and prostate infections. What’s more, the sweet Shepherd was very fearful of other dogs and unfamiliar situations. It was clear that life for Clover had been very, very hard.
- 4.KikiKiki’s story begins all the way back in 2012, when the ASPCA rescued him from an extremely cruel situation. He was admitted to the ASPCA Animal Hospital for emaciation, ulcers, skin disease, ear infections and multiple fractured teeth. He was only about six months old at the time, and over the next year-and-a-half, he was in and out of isolation wards and hospital units. In his short little life, the poor dog had already suffered so much.
