It’s just a matter of time before Central Oregon will be stuck by a major wildfire and being prepared in an emergency can help relieve some of the stress that is caused from the emergency.  Karen Burns, with the Humane Society of Central Oregon says your pets feel your stress and, should you be evacuated because of wildfire or some other reason, having an emergency plan can help keep everyone more calm.  "A lot of evacuation shelters don't accept pets. So having a plan in advance of where you ca go, where your animals will be accepted.  At the shelter here we have a list of hotels that allow animals. Or out of town relatives, ask them 'would you be willing to let us stay?' or something like that, just to have plane of where you can go and not be separated from your animals."  Burns says to put a kit together with several days of food, medications, litter, blankets, bowls or anything else your pet may need is a great idea.  You can get more tips at the Humane Society of Central Oregon website:  www.hsco.org.
