Your emergency and evacuation plans must include provisions for your pets.
Have a safe place to take your pets , especially in case an evacuation is ordered.
Remember: During an evacuation, American Red Cross disaster shelters cannot accept pets. Service animals who assist people with disabilities are the onlyanimals allowed in Red Cross shelters.
Plan NOW, before an emergency, to find out whether friends, relatives or pet-friendly hotels can shelter your animals in the event of a disaster. Keep a list of pet-friendly places, including phone numbers, with your other disaster supplies.
This directory of Pet-Friendly Hotels and Motelsmay help. Important: DO NOT ASSUME any hotel listed here will allow pets until you have called and spoken with someone at that hotel!
