20 Days to Ready is a series of simple, daily tasks to help you better prepare for emergencies and protect your family when disaster strikes. Follow along, day by day, and you’ll be more ready (for just about anything) in a few short weeks.
If your family needs to evacuate, it’s important to know where to take your pets. Some disaster shelters accept pets, but many do not — so if your family’s evacuation plan takes you to a shelter, check to see whether Fido is welcome or consider finding a pet-friendly shelter instead.
Alternatively, you can search for other places to take your pets. The American Red Cross says before a disaster strikes, you can investigate and make a list of places you can take your pet. Some potential options include:
A pet-friendly hotel (at the destination to which your family plans to evacuate)
The homes of friends or relatives in areas not affected by the disaster
Pet boarding facilities or veterinarians’ offices that offer emergency shelter
Animal shelters that provide emergency shelter or foster care for pets
