Hurricane Shelter

Are You Prepared?

Imagine a police officer knocks at your door. A hurricane has suddenly changed course – you have 45 minutes to evacuate.

If you have pets

  • Can you gather all pets and put them in carriers in time? Do you have carriers for all of your pets?
  • Are all your pets wearing collars with ID tags, their name, your name, your phone and emergency phone number?
  • If your cat escapes the carrier and becomes lost could you provide a photo?
  • Do you know where you can go in the event of an evacuation?
  • Do you know of any nearby pet friendly motels?
  • Do you know where a pet friendly emergency shelter is?
  • Is your vet’s phone number on your emergency list?
  • Do you have an alternate plan in case you’re at work?
  • Where is your pet’s emergency “Go Kit”?
