Keep your dog safe in a hurricane

If it's not safe for you, it's not safe for your dog!

If you receive an evacuation order, act quickly and leave as soon as possible with your pets.

  • Check that collars and ID tags are securely fashioned.
  • Bring crates that are big enough for your dog to stand up and lie down in comfortably.
  • Take your pet's veterinary records.
  • Take enough food, water, and medication for your pets and you for several days.
  • Know your local evacuation centers and call ahead to see if they accept pets.
  • Drive carefully and turn around when you see standing water or downed trees on the road.
