Emergency Preparedness Plans for Pets

Having a plan is important, and that plan should include your pets. Pet owners are strongly advised to make prior arrangements for sheltering their pets during emergencies. To find information on hotels that will accept pets, visit:

It is strongly encouraged that you make a list of potential hotels ahead of time, and begin calling immediately prior to evacuating. Be sure your plan includes a backup option, in case you can’t care for your animals. Pets should not be left unattended.

Remember: What is best for you is usually what is best for your animals.

Pet-Friendly Shelters

Pet-friendly shelters are designed to accommodate household pets. Owners are responsible for the feeding, care, clean-up, and behavior of their pets. Shelter openings are incident-specific. Never go to a shelter unless local officials have announced it is open.

Pet Disaster Supply Kit

If you go to a pet-friendly shelter, you will need:

  • Current rabies vaccination certificate
  • Shot records
  • Leash and collar
  • County animal license tags
  • Medications
  • Create or cage for each animal
  • Pet food
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Newspaper or pet pad
  • Comfort items for your pets
