Pets are not allowed at all emergency shelters, so it is good to have a plan for your pet ahead of time.

After A Storm: In the after math of an emergency or natural disaster, be extra careful when letting your pet loose outdoors and be sure your pet wears an identification tag.

Familiar scents and landmarks may have been altered causing your pet to get confused and possibly lost. If your pet is lost, call and visit the Humane Society as soon as possible.

In addition, other dangers after a disaster could include downed power lines and debris created by strong winds or rain.
