Extended Stay America created Hotel Keys of Hope in 2014 to support the American Cancer Society’s Hope Lodge program.

Hotel guests can even contribute to Hotel Keys of Hope by dropping your room key in the donation box located in the hotel lobby.

Emergency Travel Kit
It is important to be safe when you travel. You want to make sure you have a comprehensive first aid kit to treat any injuries. You need a contact sheet and a plan to handle emergencies. It’s how you keep your loved ones safe and healthy. But what about your pets? They’re family too, right? Once you have your family’s health emergency kit together, it makes good sense to create one for your pet.
What Is a Pet Emergency Kit?
A pet emergency kit will contain the same basic items that it would for you and your family. It’ll include first aid items, contact information, and your pet’s veterinary records. This information can be invaluable if your pet becomes sick or has an accident.
Like a first aid kit for humans, you can buy a pre-made first aid kit for your dog or cat. The kit should contain items like:
- Gauze pad and adhesive pads
- Rectal thermometer
- Scissors and tweezers
- Benadryl for allergic reactions
- Ear cleaning solution
- Eye solution
- Antibiotic ointment
Contact Information: In addition to the medical supplies, make sure to create a list of contact information. This should include your veterinarian’s name along with their location. Add local animal hospitals to the list along with friends and family members who may be able to help in a pet emergency.
If your pet has been chipped, include the name of the location company and your pet’s chip number on the contact information, too.
Health History: Hopefully you keep your pet’s veterinary records. The vaccinations, treatments, medications and health issues should all be part of your pet’s emergency kit. For example, if your pet has diabetes then an emergency veterinary hospital would need to know that. If your pet has had reactions to vaccinations that’s also important to note.
Finally, if you have pet insurance be sure to keep that information with your pet emergency kit. You’ll need it when you visit the animal hospital or veterinarian.
As with your family health emergency kit, make sure that you have a plan for emergencies and that everyone in your family is aware of the plan. Keep your kit up to date and make sure that all medications and supplies are not expired. Keep your contact information and pet health records up to date.
An annual review of your pet’s health emergency kit should be sufficient to keep it up to date. Your pet is part of the family. It makes sense to have an appropriate first aid kit and emergency plan in place to protect them.
