As committed as we may be to our dogs and pets,some of us are not as prepared as we should be in times of natural disaster.It’s essential to be prepared well ahead of time.Although a good survival kit is always a must, don’t be hesitant to go overboard when shopping for all necessities and a few of  Fido’s favorite treats and toys.Being organized in times of stress and knowing how to handle flooding and an emergency move with your dogs, can be a life saver.

Most importantly, bring your pets with you in case of an evacuation.
