Pet-Friendly Evacuation Shelters

Animal Services operates pet-friendly shelters during emergencies. Pre-registration is not required to use the evacuation center. Evacuation centers will be announced as needed. 

Upon arrival at the center, pets will be examined by a licensed veterinarian to determine if the pet presents a safety risk. Any pet deemed a risk will not be allowed to enter the evacuation center.

We also have this great tip sheet that will help plan with the entire family, including your furry loved one, in mind.
