Introducing a new dog to your cats:
The Dumb Friends League has an extensive library of resources
We think it can’t happen to us, but no one is immune and it is imperative for everyone’s safety to be prepared for whatever disaster may strike — earthquake, fire, tsunami, volcanic eruption, hurricanes, etc. — by assembling an emergency kit for your pets and you. Keep your pets extra safe with up-to-date tags and microchips, which can be essential in a disaster in which a pet may become separated from you.
A typical pet emergency kit should include:
- Pet first aid kit (available online)
- Litter and disposable pans
- One pet carrier per pet
- Extra leashes and collars/harnesses
- Food and water bowls
- Two weeks’ worth of extra medication if your pet requires regular treatment (replace regularly so it doesn’t expire)
- Photocopies of your pets’ medical records
- Recent photos of your pet
Disasters such as earthquakes, hurricanes and tsunamis, the public water supply may be contaminated or disrupted. For this reason, all emergency kits should include at least a seven-day supply of bottled water, in addition to three days’ worth of nonperishable food items for you and your pets. For a full list of emergency supplies for earthquake preparedness, visit the Centers for Disease Control website.

The FIVE FREEDOMS
As part of Mojo’s Hope outreach program we want to assist where we can. This sweet Good Samaritan has helped to bring into rescue many cats who were struggling to live outdoors. Her heart is huge and she helps out so many on a daily basis in different ways. She is unable to get to the vet on her own, so we offered to assist when she told us that her sweet George was under the weather. Thankfully the team at College Village Animal Clinic was able to fit us in for an exam and we are happy to share that George is doing just fine. He is one very happy, relaxed and very sweet kitty. We are so grateful he is okay and back home with the one he loves.
