Plan for your pet with these tips.
What 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. Be sure you have a pet disaster preparedness kit prepared. This includes:
- 14-day supply of food and water in sealed containers
- Crate or carrier for each pet in which he can stand up and turn around in
- Leash and collar with up to date ID and license tags
- Bedding, towels and toys
- Food and water bowls; can opener
- Grooming supplies
- Cleaning supplies for crates and litter boxes
- Cat litter in sealed containers with litter pan
- Vaccine records and other paperwork
- Veterinary information
- Photographs of your pet
- Pet first aid kit
Pets need an ID tag, collar and a leash, as well as a two-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 Hawaiian Humane Society volunteers.
