In the first few days after a disaster, leash your pets.
Familiar scents and landmarks may be altered and your pet may become confused and lost.
The behaviour of your pets may change after an emergency. Normally quiet and friendly pets may become aggressive or defensive. Watch animals closely. Leash dogs and place them in a fenced yard with access to shelter and water.
Locate a Missing Pet
Pets displaced by a disaster are frequently housed in shelters. Contact your local authorities to locate missing pets.
