4 Things to Do for Your Pets Now…

We hope you and your family are doing well. 

We, along with the San Bernardino County Coalition of Animal Shelters, would like to remind pet owners to have an emergency plan for your pets amid the COVID-19 crisis.  There is no evidence that COVID-19 affects our beloved pets; however, as we see increasing numbers of people being affected and hospitalized as a result of this pandemic, shelters are preparing for a surge in temporarily homeless animals.

By having a plan, you will not only help your pets be prepared to get through this difficult time, but also help free up space for lost and abandoned animals at the shelter.  This is so important all year, and especially during the Spring kitten season when we see hundreds of kittens enter the shelter.  Here are some tips for your emergency plan:

*	Find a temporary caregiver for your pets if you or someone in your household becomes ill or hospitalize.  This could be a neighbor, family member, friend, pet sitter, or boarding facility. The goal is to keep animals out of shelters so we have room to help lost and abandoned animals.

*	Make sure all pets have proper identification (tag, microchip) with your name and contact information.  You can make an appointment any day of the week to have your pet microchipped by calling the shelter at (909) 931-4185, Option 4.

*	Put together a caregiver kit with extra food, 2-weeks of medication, a kennel or crate, and any other necessary supplies for your pets.
*	Write caregiver instructions for each of your pets with your information (name and phone number), animal medical conditions, treatment instructions, feeding quantities and schedule, whether your pets are up-to-date on vaccinations, your veterinarian's contact information, and contact information for friends or family members who can provide an update on your medical status.  Here's a  <> template from the House Rabbit Society.

We wish you and your family of people and pets all the best as we all navigate this pandemic together.  If you have any questions about emergency planning for your pets, please send us an e-mail  <mailto:info at> here.
