Pet Preparation Checklist

At MVS we know that preparing for a major storm can be hectic. That’s why we’re providing you with a pet evacuation / preparedness checklist. Ideally you should assemble these supplies in advance of any emergency and store in an easy-to-carry, waterproof container close to an exit. Below is a list of the recommended supplies.

  • At least 7 days’ supply of water
  • Feeding dish and water bowl
  • Liquid dish soap

*These items must be rotated and replaced to ensure they don’t expire

Sanitation

  • Litter, litter pan, and scoop (shirt box with plastic bag works well for pan)
  • Newspaper, paper towels, and trash bags
  • Household chlorine beach or disinfectant

Important Documents
