Make a Pet Earthquake Kit

You love your pets – and you take good care of them.

Your furry, or slimy, or scaly, or feathered friends are counting on you to provide for them when an earthquake strikes.  Most of the items you need to make a pet earthquake kit are things you already have in your home.

Simply collect them in a safe place so you can find them easily after an earthquake.
