Emergency planning for pets, livestock and zoos
Have you prepared the animals in your care for disasters?
What would you do about your animals in the event of fire, flooding, earthquakes, war etc?
These organisations have information about ways to help prepare yourself & your animals. Wherever you are in the world, they can be helpful, whether the advice is coming from the US, Australia, the UK - wherever. Be prepared, and don't wait for disaster to strike before you consider what to do. Remember, you may literally have just a few minutes to get yourselves and your animals out.
