Pets in a disaster
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

Do they have any kennels set up for this?  Anyone you can take them to in an emergency that you set up in advance?

In New York City allowances were made for pets in shelters.

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 ..
