Any emergency plan must include your pets. Try to think of things that would make them comfortable and safe if you should have to leave your home, and bring those things with you if you are forced to evacuate.

Find shelter ahead of time in case you can’t find a pet-friendly hotel.

Mani-pedis are really important for both dogs and cats. If left unattended, nails can grow into the skin. Not only is this painful but it also makes walking extremely difficult. If you struggle to trim nails, both a groomer or the vet’s office can help. Some adoption agencies offer free nail trims for life. So be sure to ask when you adopt.

A nice cat scratching post will also help keep nails in good shape.
