Your animals are your responsibility. You need to include them in your emergency planning and preparation. Make sure you have enough food, water and supplies for your animals for three days or more.
The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) has advice for preparing a plan for your animals in an emergency, including checklists for different types of animals and different emergencies. Work through the checklists to develop your plan.
