What to Do With Your Bird In Case of an Evacuation
Planning ahead of time is the best way to prepare yourself and your bird for a possible emergency evacuation. No one wants to think about natural disasters or even house fires occurring. But planning ahead and knowing what to do ASAP can save your life and that of your pet bird. It’s a common suggestion to have a ‘go’ bag packed for yourself, your family and your pets. If you have a bird, pack a ‘go’ bag of food, water, bowls, treats, toys, and a transport carrier. Keep the bag near the door so you can grab it quickly. Call local designated shelters ahead of time to find out if they allow birds. Plan to head to the ones that do. You may want to call local hotels to find out the same. For further assistance in preparing your bird for an emergency, talk to your Louisville, CO vet.
