Travelling tips for pets via car

In times like volcanic eruption, and you are told to evacuate, here are some handy tips you need to know to properly travel with your pets.

  • All cats should be in a crate or carrier.
  • Dogs can be either in crate or carrier, or restrained in a special harness that attaches to the seat belt. If you use a pet barrier in the back seat or deck of your SUV, be sure it is sturdy and firmly attached so it does not collapse on your pet.
  • Never allow your pet to ride in the front passenger seat (especially one that is airbag equipped).
  • Never let your pet out of the car without proper restraint.
  • Don’t allow your pet to ride with their head out the window; they could get hurt by flying debris.
  • Never leave your pet alone in a parked car. He or she will be vulnerable to heat stroke or theft.
  • If you are traveling out of town, stop regularly so that your pet can stretch his legs and have a drink of water.
