News ImageDecember 6, 2017  HIGH WINDS WARNINGS FOR OC RESIDENTSAttention Orange County Residents. High Wind Warnings are expected to continue through Friday. It's important to prepare for any scenario, as high winds and loud noises can cause anxiety and stress out your furry friends. Checkout some of these tips below to keep your pets happy and safe during these extreme windy weather conditions.

1. If possible, keep your four-legged friends inside to prevent any injury that may be caused by loose or falling debris. If your pet needs to be kept outside, make sure they have an adequate and secure shelter to protect them.
2. Make sure your pets have proper identification. High winds can blow open gates or blow down sections of fences and dogs can escape. Microchips and ID tags will help your lost pets find their way home.
3. Provide your pet with a calm and quiet area inside your household where they can be undisturbed to help them distress and relax.
4. The best way to keep you and your pet safe in any disaster is to be prepared. Visit http://www.ocpetinfo.com/edu/prepare for helpful resources on how to prepare your pet in the case of an emergency.

In the event of any emergency, follow OC Animal Care on all of our social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) for disaster updates and important information.
