Animals in emergencies
Emergencies impact on animals and humans. Animal owners and carers are responsible for planning and providing for the needs of animals in their charge.
Bonds between people and animals strongly influence decision-making in times of emergency and animal carers may risk their lives when protecting their animals.
You can reduce the impacts and risks for both humans and animals by planning, preparing and acting on your plan.
Pets, livestock, wildlife and companion animals may be affected, by a range of types of emergency, in settings that may be rural, urban or bushland.
