Do you have an emergency decal on your home during hurricane season in Hawaii? If not take a few moments and order one online. The decal is vinyl and will stick to any window. In an evacuation situation this could save your pets life. Some pet stores sell decals but you can get a free one from the ASPCA.

The Free ASPCA emergency kit for pets is not only for hurricane season in Hawaii which is from June to November but for any other emergencies where your pet may need to be rescued from the home. Fill out the quick form and they will mail your kit absolutely at no cost to you.

This easy-to-use sticker will let people know that pets are inside your home. Make sure it is visible to rescue workers, and that it includes 1) the types and number of pets in your household; 2) the name of your veterinarian; and 3) your veterinarian's phone number. If you must evacuate with your pets, and if time allows, write "EVACUATED" across the stickers.

In the event of an emergency, their pet rescue window decal alerts rescue personnel that pets are inside your home. The safety pack also includes an ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center magnet and is a great way to keep the APCC's toll-free emergency number and website address handy in case your pets get into something they shouldn’t. You can place a window decal on both front and back doors of my home. You can also keep the number of the poison control center on the refrigerator. Allow 4-6 weeks for delivery or you can make your own temporary window sign.
