The OSPCA reminds everyone to have an Emergency Pet Survival Kit at the ready, at all times.  Here in Ontario, we're personally responsible for our own safety and survival during the first 72 hours of an emergency. The responsibility of caring for PETS ultimately rests on us as well, so it’s important to create a 72-hour Pet Emergency Survival Kit, much like we would for ourselves and our families. 

It's best to check the kit twice a year, updating it as required. Ensure there's always fresh water, food & meds and restock any items that may have been used or outdated.  Remember your ability to care for your pet during a time of emergency will depend on how well you have prepared for it. Take the time to create a Pet Emergency Survival Kit; it may just very well save your pets life one day.  Whether you own dogs or cats, ferrets, rabbits, hamsters, amphibians or other small animals, click here to download your Emergency Checklist. Recommended items include:

  • 72 hour food & water supply, with bowls and a can opener
  • Blankets/towels & toys; leash, muzzle and harness
  • Litter pan, litter, plastic bags and scooper
  • Pet carrier to allow for easy transport
  • Medical records, Veterinarian’s name and contact number
  • Medications and a pet first aid kit
  • Current photo of your pet along with their name, address and brief description
  • Information on your pets feeding schedule, temperament/behavior, medical concerns
  • ID tags, micro-chip number and flashlight
  • List of boarding facilities, hotels that can accommodate pets
