Prepare Your Pets Now for a Hurricane


Hurricane season starts June 1. Make a plan for your pet now, so you’re ready before a storm hits:

– Know your flood and evacuation zones. Check Pinellas and Hillsborough county websites to see if your residence is in such a zone.

– Pre-register your pet for a nearby emergency shelter. Few emergency shelters accept pets, and pre-registration is required for pet-friendly shelters near you.

– Pack 3-5 days of supplies for pets if you need to evacuate, like food, medication and a favorite toy. Make sure your pet’s microchip and tag are current, and bring their medical records.
