Pet care in an emergency

If you or the person you care for have pets, you are responsible for their care. This includes planning who will care for your pets if there is an emergency and you're unable to care for them.

You should include this information on your carer's emergency plan.

Advice from the RSPCA

The RSPCA have put together a guide to having someone else look after your pet. It includes information on:
