National Animal Disaster Preparedness Day raises awareness on the importance for pet owners to have a safety plan in place for their pets in the event of an emergency.
Emergencies always happen when you least expect it, and sometimes we have to evacuate our homes for safety reasons.
However, those sudden evacuations leave many people scrambling to grab supplies for themselves, that more often than not, their pets are left out.
Pet Evac Pak’s are just what pet parents need in the time of chaos.
These “go bags” have all the essentials your pet needs for a few days and are all nicely packed together to grab and go!
Pictured above is my Pet Evac Pak for a small to medium dog, up to 30 pounds.
Inside this very sturdy back pack is:

Pet Evac Pak’s was created by two friends, Michelle and Claudia, after they were delivering donated supplies to animal shelters after Hurricane Harvey.
Realizing the lack of emergency kits for family pets, inspired the two friends to come up with a bag every pet owner would benefit from having in their home.
I was lucky enough to meet Michelle and Claudia last year and can tell you that their dedication to pet safety is precisely what I want in a business as a pet parent.
Another perk to this dynamic duo is Claudia is a Marine Corps veteran.
Pet Evac Pak’s are great to have in your home, no matter where you live.
No place is free from sudden emergencies or natural disasters like hurricanes, tsunamis, tornados, and earthquakes.
The packs are also great to have in your car on road trips.
Emergencies wait for no one, and your pets are no exception.
Consider getting your pets prepared with their emergency kit and be ready when disaster strikes, no matter where you are.
