What You Need To Bring To The Shelter
Animals will not be admitted to a pet-friendly emergency shelter without a crate or carrier that’s large enough to accommodate the pet comfortably. Pets need an ID tag, collar and a leash, as well as a week supply of the following: food, medications and litter for cats. You can download
our disaster preparedness brochure for more information.

Pet shelters are in separate rooms or buildings on public school campuses where emergency shelters for people are. The animals will be cared for by Humane Society volunteers.
