Snowstorm Plan for Pets
SERVPRO® of Denver North responds to storm damage emergencies throughout the year, and winter storms can last a few hours or a couple of days, so along with having a planned storm preparedness plan in place to protect your family, it’s a good idea to create a plan for protecting your pets and animals too. Here are some tips from the American Red Cross for protecting your pets and animals during a winter storm:
- Bring your companion animals indoors. - Ensure that you have supplies for clean-up for your companion animals, particularly if they are used to eliminating outdoors (large plastic bags, paper towels, and extra cat litter).
- Create a place where your other animals can be comfortable in severe winter weather: - Horses and livestock should have a shelter where they can be protected from wind, snow, ice, and rain. - Grazing animals should have access to a protected supply of food and non-frozen water.
- Ensure that any outbuildings that house or shelter animals can withstand wind and heavy snow and ice- Install snow fences in rural areas to reduce drifting snow on roads and paths, which could block access to homes, barns, and animals' feed and water.
