Man, I didn’t realize how unprepared I am until reading your disaster preparedness quiz! We have a dog and we try our best to take care of her, but I’ve never thought of a plan for what we would do in an evacuation. First of all, I think we need to actually find a vet that we can go to regularly. That way we can have an emergency contact number for them. Thanks for offering some important things to consider and plan for!
