As we approach another active storm season in South Florida, Big Dog Ranch Rescue encourages dog owners to use these tips to keep your dog safe, happy, and healthy.
Tips to Follow During a Hurricane
Do not leave your dog outside or home alone. The safest place for your dog is inside with you!
Make sure your dog is wearing his or her collar and identification tag with the correct information visible – in case you get separated. Dogs with micro-chips have a much better chance of being reunited with their owners!
Keep your dog in a safe, enclosed room to protect him or her from strong winds, structural damage, or storm surge.
Keep toys, food, treats, and medication handy – this will help keep your pup happy!
Make sure your dog is up-to-date on vaccines and keep those records handy.
Have a dog emergency kit with all necessary supplies.
Do not leave your dog behind. It’s illegal! Take care of the pups!!
