Official AKC Recommendations For Pet Preparedness List

According to the AKC, this is a list of items you should have packed together in a "Pet Preparedness Kit" for your pet, in case of emergency.

  1. Leash and collar with ID tags attached
  2.  Medical health records including a current vaccination record and
    rabies tag.....especially the rabies tag.
  3. Photocopy of AKC® registration papers
  4. Recent photo of your pet
  5. At least a three-day supply of food, medication and water
  6. Food and water dishes
  7. Blankets or bedding 
  8. Crate
  9. Favorite toys 
  10. Plastic “pick-up” bags   

    AKC also recommends that you have your dog implanted with a micro chip, or have him tattooed. If that's not possible, at least have a reliable collar with an I.D. tag securely attached.  Losing your beloved pets, can only add even more heartache to an already terrible situation. Be Prepared.
