Who Can Help?

Natural disasters can be terrifying, for you and for your pets.  If circumstances occur that require you to have to evacuate your home, we recommend these following steps:

1) Download the Alberta Emergency Alert (AEA) app to your cell phone and enter your area(s) to ensure you receive all emergency notifications

2) Check in with your municipality to find out designated evacuation centres and assistance.  They will be able to provide you with locations, services and how to check in as “safe”

3) If you find yourself evacuated to Red Deer and need help for your companion animal(s), you can reach out to us for assistance at the email or phone number below.

Be Prepared for an Emergency Evacuation with Your Pets

  • Have an emergency evacuation kit for your pets containing everything they will need for up to 2 weeks away from home.
  • Ensure your pet’s vaccinations are up-to-date, and that you have proof of vaccinations with you.  You will need this if you need to place your animal in a kennel.
  • Plan ahead.  Check with family and friends now about whether you might bring pets with you should you have an extended stay with them during an evacuation.
  • Ensure they have what they need for 3-5 days, including food and water.  Do not confine or tether them.
  • Ensure pets are licensed with your municipality so their details are established and on the record.  Have their details and your contact information on the pet ID on their collar.
  • Make reunification easier. Have pets microchipped, and ensure your contact information connected is up to date. Have photos of your pets with you on your phone.
  • Ensure your animals are visually identifiable. This includes:
    • ID tags on the animals
    • A file with all ID and ownership records
    • Utilizing Alberta Government’s Premises Identification Program (PID)
  • Create a contact list of who you may need to call in case of an emergency. The list should include:
    • Neighbours
    • Livestock handlers
    • Veterinariams
    • Feed suppliers
  • Have food, water and other resources in place at the location where the animals would be moved before an evacuation occurs.
