It occurred to me the other day as I heard some clients and loved ones filling out all the emergency information for back-to-school that most of us don’t have the same preparations in place for our pets! In the event of an emergency, many loved ones are aware of where our children can be found, are authorized for pick-up and know their medical needs and contacts. So when I saw the below infographic on CAR® (California Association of Realtors®), I just knew I had to share it ~ and of course my own dog Honey B agreed!
Please take a moment to review and share the info below; I have also included some links and resources on pet emergency supplies and plans below. After all… a pet IS what makes a home… so a pet safety plan goes hand in hand with a home emergency strategy!
