Whangarei Cattery – Deloraine Holiday Retreat for Cats

We know all to well a disaster can happen at any time, and as a pet owner you may suddenly find yourself not only worrying about your family but also your pets, so it’s important to think about them when you put your families disaster plan together.

If we needed to leave our home, what should I do with the family pets?

Take your pets with you if possible, if its unsafe for you its unsafe for them, you just don’t know how long it will be befor you’re able to return home.

So how do I prepare my pet ?

Make sure your pet can be identified.. eg.. ID Tags, Microchipping, and Registration tags.

Ensure you pets Vaccinations are kept up to date … Animal shelters ….eg…. kennels and Catteries, can not take unvaccinated animals.

Include some supplies for your pet in your family emergency kit…. food, water and food bowl,  Collar and leash or carry cage, Vaccination, current registration and microchip records, Litter tray and litter…. litter can be… news paper, bark, kitty litter or similar. If your pet is on medication you should include this, and a favorite toy or blanket.

Under New Zealand Law:

It is the owners responsibility to always see to the physical, health and behavioural needs of their pets, and It is an offence to desert or abandon your pets without a reasonable excuse.
