Sheltering your Pet
With the exception of service animals, most shelters do not accept pets. Prepare a list of kennels, friends, or family members who may be able to care for your pet in an emergency.
If you plan to place your pet in a kennel, make sure the facility meets all the requirements for long-term care and has an adequate disaster plan itself.
If you family must relocate to a shelter or other site, and there is no place for your pet to go, confine your pet to a specific room in the house and provide plenty of food and water to sustain the animal while you are away (as a last resort).
