Disaster Preparedness Tips & Adoptable Pets from the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA

Disaster preparedness tips and adoptable pets at the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA. Call for information

September is National Preparedness Month. It's important to include pets in your family's emergency plan. If you must evacuate your home, do not leave your pets behind. 

The Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA recommends that you keep the following items in a secure, easy-to-reach location, such as inside your pet carriers, ready to grab and go:

  1. a week's supply of food, water, litter and pan bowls, sealed in water-proof containers

  • current ID tags on your pet at all times (we recommend microchipping all pets, ask your vet for details)

  • current color photos (in case your pet is lost) and pre-made LOST posters, preferably with a cell phone number and out-of-area alternate contact

  • a list of safe places to take your pets, including hotels within driving distance that accept pets
  • For more information, visit our website at www.pasadenahumane.org or call us at (626) 792-7151. Ready.gov/animals is also a great resource for pet owners. 

    Now moving on to adoptable pets...
