Preparing for an emergency – you’ll be glad you did!

Emergencies tend to happen when we least expect them. Make your life easier by being prepared. Here are some basics to get you started:

  • Have your local animal control and humane society phone numbers ready. In case of a road-side accident involving an animal, or if you find injured wildlife, contact animal control. In cases of suspected abuse contact your local humane society. Should your pet go missing, visit both of these facilities daily if possible.
    Some additional phone numbers:

    • Your veterinary clinic. Your veterinary healthcare team is your best resource if you are experiencing a pet emergency and are unsure what to do. Call first!
    • Veterinary emergency clinic
    • Pet Poison Helpline : 1-800-213-6680
    • Pet transport service
    • Shelter or pet friendly hotel
