Preparing animals in an emergency
The Municipal Emergency Animal Welfare Plan (MEAWP) aims to achieve the efficient and effective management of animals, and co-ordinate animal welfare agencies before, during and after an emergency event.
The Department of Primary Industries (DPI) webpage also provides members of the public with a wide range of information about animal welfare in emergencies.
The information outlines animal owners’ responsibilities and provides guides for planning for different types of animals, different hazards, and for recovery after an event.
RSPCA Victoria has also placed information on its website on caring for your animal in an emergency and planning for an emergency.
This includes pets, livestock and horses.
