Help Rescue Workers Find & Reunite Your Pets 

The AMPA Store has window  and door

fire & emergency decal stickers to alert

emergency personnel to the presence of

your pets. The AMPA Fire & Emergency 

Bundle also includes two wallet cards

to provide contact information of your

pets at home. If pets are left at home 

during hurricane evacuation, be sure

to include your phone number on 

windows, doors, and written directly on

your pet. ORDER HERE.


Crate or Carrier Sized appropriately for your pet. Feed meals inside the carrier to help acclimate your pig to the cage & keep their stress level low during the emergency travels. 


Harness Sized appropriately for your

pet. Practice putting the harness on 

and walking short distances. Learn 

more about harness training here

Car Ride Training Train your pig 

to get in/out of the car comfortably. 

Practice frequently before needed 

to make sure you can load your 

pig(s) under pressure. Learn more 

about car ride training here. 


Find Accommodations Plan ahead where you will stay during evacuation. Understand most public shelters will not allow pets. Friends or pet friendly hotels may be considered. 


Familiar Items Bring along blankets, toys, or treat dispensers that may help keep your pig comfortable or entertained during travels. 


Photo Carry a photo of you & your pet. This can be useful if you become separated. You can use the photo to network and help finding the lost pet. If the pet is found your photo will prove ownership so the rescuing agency will release the pet back to you quickly.
