Humane Society Urges Pet Owners To Prepare For COVID-19

The Windsor/Essex County Humane Society is reminding pet owners that they should have an emergency plan in place for their pets, whether or not owners are diagnosed with COVID-19.

There are several steps pet owners should take to ensure the safety and wellbeing of their pet in the case that they become unable to do so:

  • Pet owners should be making emergency plans for their pets, including ensuring that they have adequate food and supplies for them for at least a couple of weeks, as well as an emergency care plan should they not be able to care for their pets.
  •  If pet owners don’t have emergency pet care available, they should find out now who their neighbour is and ask if they might help in an emergency, contact their veterinarian, a local boarding kennel or a member of their community association, or talk to a family member.
  •  If a pet owner finds themselves in an urgent situation and has no one to help, they should contact the Humane Society to discuss their options.
