Why Emergency Drinking water?

Water is the first item that should go in an emergency pack. Our pets' bodies can start to shut down within 72 hours without water.


How much water does my pet need? A general rule of thumb is that a healthy pet will usually drink between 1/2 to 1 oz of water per pound of body weight per day. For example, a 20-pound dog would need 10 to 20 oz of water per day.


What is the difference between regular drinking water and emergency drinking water? Answer - The expiration date! 


Did you know all plastic bottles have an expiration date? It's usually 1 year from the date of manufacturing. The plastic will start to deteriorate after the expiration date. Emergency water has a 5-year shelf life because they are packed in a foil-sealed pouch.

PET EVAC PAK in the News!

Great Summer Project for your Kids! 

Terri Russell KoloTV - Time to build an evacuation pack and plan for your pet

RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - Michelle Danielson says now that school is out, it might be a fun activity to put together an evacuation kit for the family pet.


Small children may not fully understand the possibilities when it comes to an emergency. But pictures and video from the Caldor Fire last summer remind us we could be asked to evacuate our homes at any time.


We’ll need to take our pets.


“Get your kids involved,” says Danielson co-founder of the Pet Evac Pak. “Let them help you build that pack. They are helping save the family pet. What a great thing to do this summer,” she says.

BLOG: HOW TO BUILD A PET EMERGENCY KIT


June is National Pet Preparedness Month and there is no better time than now to make sure your pets are prepared for emergencies.


With all the disasters over the past few years, it’s become vital that we not only have an emergency plan for ourselves and our families but we need to think about our pets. You never want to leave them behind so being prepared is half the battle.

Pet Safety Tip - Leaving your pet behind


It's usually never a good outcome for your pet if you leave it behind during an emergency, but for some reason, you can't catch it or there isn't the time or maybe you aren't home, here are a couple of things you can do.


Have a buddy system with a close friend or neighbor. Someone you trust to grab your pet and their safety supplies if you can't get back to your home.


Make sure you leave your doors, kennels, and gates open. Never leave them without an escape route. They stand a better chance if they are free. If you can keep your phone number on their belly with an indelible marker and they are rescued it's possible you might be reunited.


Keep the phone number of your local Animal Control in your vehicle.  They might be able to help rescue your pet.


The best case is to make a plan, and have a go-bag for your pet ready so you can take them with you.

Pet's in Red Cross Shelters

Did you know that most American Red Cross Shelters can not accept pets?  Sighted due to health and safety issues.


While it is becoming more acceptable and they understand that pets are part of our families.  It is really up to each Red Cross Manager to decide if it's safe to allow pets in the shelter.


If there is a no-pet policy you can ask for a waiver in an emergency, however, this is not a guarantee you will be allowed in with your pet.  


Most Red Cross shelters will work with local Animal Control to set up separate facilities for your pets.  


Red Cross suggests that you have a plan and make a go-bag for your pet and never leave them behind in an emergency.
