2011 Hurricane Season

Batten down the hatches and be ready to evacuate you and your pets if necessary!  The 2011 hurricane season began June 1st and ends officially November 30th.  With a bit of  luck from Mother Nature perhaps we can put one past her this year.  Just in case be sure to have an advance plan of action to move you and your pets to safety.  Don’t forget that Carteret County has a “Companion” (pet-friendly) hurricane shelter located at the Newport Middle School, 500 E. Chatham St.  Be sure to take a look at our “Hurricane Shelter” page for useful information about how to utilize this shelter if needed.  It’s helpful but not required to pre- register you and your pets.  As always, volunteers staff all of the PAWS projects so please step up and help if possible.  Your help is needed and appreciated so very much by the community and the critters.
