Is your pet prepared for hurricane season?

While it looks like Hurricane Isaac will avoid us, there are many things that need to be considered. When making your plans for the hurricane season, make sure to include your pet. If a hurricane were to come, there are certain supplies you would need to have set aside for your animals. Pet owners must plan ahead in case of evacuation because many public shelters will not accept pets. If your pet does not have a microchip already, now would be a perfect time to have it done.
