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