As we are getting ready for hurricane Florence, we decided to inform you about all local emergency contacts and local pet-friendly shelters that you might need so you can prepare your pets for hurricane Florence.
Hurricane Florence is described as a strong and tropical cyclone that is getting near the Southeastern part of the United States and the Mid-Atlantic states. The hurricane originates from a tropical wave that emerged out off the west coast of Africa last month (August).
The major impact of the hurricane is expected to be on these countries: North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, and Maryland. Most of these states issued evacuation orders already.
It is very important when facing a storm like this one to be prepared ahead. Especially when there are children and pets involved. In this news article, we are linking a post where you can find all emergency contacts and pet-friendly shelters in the countries that will be affected by the storm.
Make time to prepare so you can avoid disastrous situations. Check the status of your nearest pet shelter or pet-friendly human shelter. Most of the shelters require you to sign-up yourself and your pet several days ahead. All shelters will require proof that you have residency within that specific evacuation zone, vaccination and medical records for your pet so don’t forget to take that with you. In all shelters, the owner of the pet is responsible for the pet.
