Evacuation Checklist

  • Food and water. Keep food and water in an airtight, waterproof container. Water should be in addition to the water you need for yourself and family.

  • Medicine and medical records. Keep an extra supply of medicine your pet takes on a regular basis in a waterproof container, as well as Veterinary and microchip ID records. All boarding facilities and veterinarian offices require proof of immunization before accepting animals.

  • Collar with ID tag, harness or leash. Your pet should wear a collar with its rabies tag and identification at all times. Include a backup leash, collar and ID tag.

  • Crate or other pet carrier and blankets or towels. Get a portable, secure and covered pet carrier in advance. Carrier should be large enough so that your pet can completely turn around, and lie down. Mark your name, address, phone number and an alternate contact on the carrier.

  • Sanitation. Include pet litter, newspapers, towels, plastic trash bags and household chlorine bleach. Do not use scented or color safe bleaches, or those with added cleaners. Use 16 drops of regular bleach per gallon of water.

  • Stay Informed. Know what emergency plans are being created and how you will evacuate.

Helping Others

When an emergency strikes, many cats are left displaced from their homes and surrendered to rescue organizations, like Cat Haven. During these times, it is crucial for us to build our volunteer foster base to ensure maximum support and care for the many helpless felines we rescue.  

It is pivotal that we secure more volunteer fosters for the influx of cats we see during urgent times. If you are willing and able to sign up as a volunteer foster, we urge you to please to do. Any amount of time you are willing to be a volunteer foster makes an immense difference and a direct impact. 

It is consequential that we gain volunteers willing to foster adult cats! We only have so much room at our Adoption Center to house felines and need your help to continue fulfilling our mission!
