My question is , what do folks do with precious pets when a disaster happens, no way would I leave mine behind ..we hear all this talk of evacuating but do officials really believe people like me would leave pets alone and in danger..I lived in Florida a few years ago and we were threatened by a hurricane and Tornados, no way was I leaving with out my animal but all shelters specifically said " No PETS" Why cannot all shelters have an area for pets and owners together and on seperately for people without pets
One question I thought of is where do the animals go poop? LOL. But seriously I can see the cats can have a box but what about dogs do they have a pen to put the dogs in or a dog run? They don't like to go where they sleep.
Thats a good point I dont know but if I had a dog I would sit in my car if I had to evacuate rather than leave them in an empty house, I have a cat now but where I lived in Florida the shelters said no pets ..
