DARTMOUTH: As Hurricane Dorian moves toward Nova Scotia for Sept. 7-8, it’s important to prep and protect your pet 🐾

▪️Always bring pets indoors at the first sign or warning of a storm. Pets can panic and wander away in a crisis
▪️Make sure you have a 72-hour supply of food, water, and medications
▪️After the storm, don’t let your furry friends roam loose as there may be debris like downed power lines and sharp objects that could harm your pet
▪️If you witness a pet in distress, call animal control or report animal cruelty by contacting the Nova Scotia SPCA confidential toll-free hotline at 1-888-703-7722
