Disaster Planning Resources for Pet Owners


Animal Medical of Chesapeake's Dr. Carrico is an active member of our local Chesapeake CART.  She & CART have been instrumental in making sure there is a Pet Shelter set up nearby when Chesapeake sets up an evacuation shelter for Humans.  Luckily we have been fortunate and not sustained a direct 'hit' recently; but we are prepared!

Get the entire family involved in Disaster Planning!  Here are some links that can help with educating yourself (& your children about how they can help - and feel less frightened) when a disaster is anticipated.
