Pet-Friendly Evacuation Shelters in Our Area

Amanda Mcnamara (Click on link for all Florida pet-friendly shelters.)
Sept. 7, 2017

Taken from The American Kennel Club's directory that had been created in response to Hurricane Irma for humans seeking refuge with their furry family members. You must bring your pet's:

  • Immunization records
  • Identification (collar w/ tag)
  • Crate or carrying cage
  • Leash
  • Food & water bowls
  • Food to last a couple days if need be
  • Medications

Your pet may like a favorite blanket or toy for comfort, as well. Assemble a "go bag" for your pet as well as yourself should you need to evacuate.

You can board your pet in a kennel in a safe location. You should keep paperwork documenting your pet’s immunizations because many kennels will not accept pets that are behind on their shots. Bring your pet in a carrier with sufficient food. If you don’t go to a public shelter, bring your pet with you in a carrying cage. Bring along a familiar toy, a leash and any medication. Have current identification for each pet in case of separation.
