Pet owners be sure to include your animal in any disaster plans you establish for your home.  State officials say pet owners should stock a pet kit that includes at least three days of food and water, an extra supply of pet meds, and a collar with ID tag.  Pets are often forgotten and left behind when people leave home or have to seek shelter during emergency situations.
