We love our pets.

You love your pets – and you take good care of them.

Your furry, or slimy, or scaly, or feathered friends are counting on you to provide for them when an earthquake strikes.  Most of the items you need to make a pet earthquake kit are things you already have in your home.

Simply collect them in a safe place so you can find them easily after an earthquake.

A pet carrier and vaccination records are essential if you find you and/or your pet must go to an emergency shelter.  Only pets with valid vaccination records are accepted in shelters.

Herbert and Bellatrix say, "Make an earthquake kit for your kitties!"
