Prepare Your Pets and Animals

Pet Preparedness

During an emergency, you and your animal companion(s) may be on your own for several days, and your pets will be relying on you to help them through it. Preparing for your pets is just as important as preparing for the human members of your family.

Premises ID Program

If you keep livestock, poultry, or animals other than household pets on your property, register with Premises ID before a natural disaster. This free program manages emergency contact information and specific geographic details  for parcels of land where such animals are located.

This is an important step in protecting the health and safety of your animals, and can be used to help in disaster response and recovery. Premises ID is open to a variety of applicants such as farms/stables, feedlots, hatcheries, veterinary hospitals, petting zoos and fair grounds.

Visit Premises ID for more information and to complete the online registration.
