Protect Yourself from Injury & Illness

  • Disasters are stressful for humans and pets alike. Practice safe handling of your pet, because your pet may behave differently during a stressful situation.
  • To avoid common diseases that pets can transmit to people:
    • Wash your hands before and after handling your pet and its waste
    • Wash your hands right after handling pet food or treats
    • Wash your hands after picking up your pet's stool or cleaning a litter box
    • Avoid letting your pet lick your face or hands
