Caring for pets in a hurricane

Make arrangements for your pets as part of your household disaster planning. If you must evacuate your home, it’s always best to take your pets with you. For health and space reasons, pets will not be allowed in public emergency shelters. If, as a last resort, you have to leave your pets behind, make sure you have a plan to ensure their care.
