      Would your pet be safe in a disaster?


      Hurricane Sandy is on a lot of people's minds.


      One thing you need to think of when you're preparing for a disaster is your four legged friend.


      You should keep vaccinations and records in a ziplock waterproof bag.


      Make sure you have at least one weeks food in a water tight container.


      Also, to increase your chances of getting your pet back in a disaster, you should make sure your pet is microchipped.



      Sally Westerhoff with the Quincy Humane Society says, "I've been to a couple post disasters to help with rescue efforts. Collars can come off, tags can fall off, or get torn off. But, a microchip is implanted and it's one identification means that can't get lost during a disaster. "




      You can get your pet microchipped at the Quincy Humane Society for $10 every Monday.
