Pets

Pets are a part of the family and need to be included in our disaster plans and preparations.

Most disaster shelters cannot accept pets, other that service animals, due to health and safety regulations.  It is important to determine a head of time where you will take your pets in the event they cannot safely stay at home. 

The following links will take you to several webpages that contain detailed information about pet disaster preparedness.
