WILDFIRE PET SAFETY

The hot sweltering days of summer with those 100+ degree days, nights that don’t seem to cool off much and the sound of a distant thunderstorm with lightening strikes are upon us.  We here in the foothill and mountain communities are all too familiar with wildfire season and the devastation to everything that they bring.  Everyone is aware that vegetation clearance around homes, out buildings, barns and pastures is critical, but are we as prepared as we should be to protect and care for our livestock and pets in case of a disaster and potential evacuation.  Preparation and planning ahead can avoid heartache and loss so let’s get prepared!

Plan where you will go with your pets and livestock before disaster strikes.  Be sure to keep your pets contained while traveling because they will be just as anxious as you are in an emergency situation and you don’t want them in your lap when you are trying to drive or tossed about, use a carrier, crate or pet seatbelt.  Have an evacuation plan with multiple routes if possible and prepare a bug-out or disaster kit for all your animals.  Here is a checklist of items to include:

Pet Disaster Kit

  • Proof of ownership for each pet which includes registration papers, vaccination or medical records, contact information for your veterinarian and current pictures contained in a waterproof bag.
  • Make sure your pet is microchipped.
  • Non-nylon collars, harness and leads with name tags and current contact information
  • Food and water for at least a week, preferably two weeks
  • Treats for those anxious moments
  • Non-spill bowls that are weighted on the bottom
  • Medical First Aid Kit especially for pets. (These can be found at Amazon, Chewy or any other online source). If you travel with your pets, it is good to keep a kit in your vehicle and then you always have the supplies you need in case of emergency.
  • Medications with instructions
  • Pet restraint equipment for your vehicle, pet seatbelts
  • Pet carriers for smaller pets.
  • Soft, plastic or metal crates for larger pets
  • Bedding, blankets, towels and some toys or familiar favorite items for comfort
  • Kitty Litter for your feline family with a scoop
  • Bags for waste disposal
  • Cleaning supplies, disinfectant spray and paper towels
  • Made-ahead “Lost Poster” with a current picture of your pet and contact information in case you are separated

 

Livestock Disaster Kit

  • Proof of ownership which includes registration papers, vaccination or medical records, contact information for your veterinarian and current pictures contained in a waterproof bag.
  • Microchip your equine family.
  • Hay, pelleted feed and water for at least three days.
  • Buckets for water and feed
  • Hoof pick
  • Leg wraps
  • Non-nylon halter and lead
  • Medications
  • Barn or Equine First Aid Kit
  • Trash can with lid
  • Shovel

 

If you can’t take your livestock or pets with you when you evacuate, don’t leave them tied up outside. Dogs and cats are best left inside the home, preferably in a bathroom with no windows. Partially fill the tub with water or in the case of a shower only bathroom leave multiple buckets or containers of water that are weighted so they won’t get turned over.  Be sure to leave them food.   Leave livestock in a cleared pen with plenty of feed and water.  Don’t rely on automatic watering systems because power will likely be lost and they will not work.   Occasionally fire fighters may need to cut fences and release animals when they are in danger so keep a list of all livestock with current pictures for identification and make sure neighbors have your contact information.

If you have left animals or livestock at home, when you are safely evacuated, Fresno County has an Animal in Disaster Response Request form which you can access from your phone at https://redcap.link/helpmyanimals.   Fill out all the information requested and a team of volunteers will attempt to rescue as many animals as they are able.  The information on the form is vital to be reunited with your animal family.

Have a safe summer and be prepared!
