Large Animal Evacuation
Animal owners need to prepare and practice a plan for evacuating their animals in the event of an emergency.
Some things to consider are:
- How to prepare yourself and your animals before an emergency
- What to have on hand (halters, ropes, meds, special diets, instructions, etc.)
of animals prior to an emergency
- How to identify your animals after an emergency has occurred.
Where do you go?
- What to do if not at home when your community is evacuated
30 page booklet entitled What do I do With my Horse in Fire Flood or Earthquake is available in Adobe PDF format. For a free download,
visit the Equestrian Trails website at
An Animal Evacuation Checklist is available HERE (opens in a new window) to help you with evacuation planning.
It is important that we know where animals are located so
that trailers can be sent to help owners evacuate quickly. Please fill out the Animal Population Survey HERE (opens in a new window)
and return it to the address indicated. This information is not shared with anyone.
