Natural Disaster Pet Preparation

(Updated 2020)

Fun Paw Care is located in Los Angeles California where earthquakes, fires, and floods are every year events. We always prepare for the worst weather and hope for the best. When a fire, storm, or earthquake hits or is threatening, we contact all of our Members to make sure all are taken care of and safe.  Prevention and preparation are the keys to pet safety with Ready Set Go.  That means establishing a relationship with a dog boarding or dog kennel facility way before disaster breaks out.

As with fireworks preparation,  natural disaster preparation is an important time to condition your dogs to nontraditional environments, loud noises, and to stock up on non-perishables and essential gear for you and your family with special consideration given to your pets. Also, please don’t forget about all of your loved ones who may be disabled or elderly in your community and neighbors and their pets that may need your assistance during these times.

We will keep you posted with the most up-to-date news here on our blog and our social media pages.

Remember, if the conditions are not safe for you, they are not safe for your pets.  Very important, please make sure your microchip data (your email, address, and phone number) is up-to-date.  So many people forget to update all of this information that the microchip becomes useless when you need it the most. Dog tags fall off or are taken off; microchips are the most effective way to find your pets again.

Please remember, leaving your pet at home is not only cruel but against the law. The more planning you do beforehand, the better.  When you have pets in your life, you will need extra time to plan and prepare, please start that now if you have not done so already.

In all shelters, a guardian/pet parent must stay with your pet unless otherwise specified
