Prepare a Pet Evacuation Kit

Prepare a portable kit specifically for your bird. It should include the following items:
  • Travel Carrier
    Ensure the carrier is sturdy, secure, well- ventilated and appropriately sized for your bird. Choose a carrier that will work best with how you plan to travel.
  • Food & Water
    Carry enough food and bottled water to last a few days. Bring familiar food that will be comforting during stressful situations.
  • Medications & First-Aid Supplies
    Include any necessary medications for your bird and a basic first-aid kit. In the kit, include medical supplies for both you and the bird.
  • Cage Liners & Cleaning Supplies
    Keep your bird's environment as clean and hygienic as possible. Having supplies on-hand will help reduce stress for you and your feathered friend.
  • Comfort Items
    Bring your bird's favorite toys or items to help reduce stress during the evacuation. Having something to distract them during travel can help them stay more calm and comfortable.
  • Health Records & Identification
    Include copies of medical records, ID tags and a recent photo of your bird. Also consider microchipping your bird if they are large enough. Talk to your vet to see if microchipping is the best option.
