If you need or choose to evacuate during a hurricane, take your pets with you. Never leave them behind. Animals left behind can be lost, injured, or even killed if left inside your home or turned loose outside to fend for themselves.
See the Humane Society of the United States’ CASEY (Caring for Animal Safety in Emergencies during the Year) Plan for instructions on what to do in natural disaster situations. It includes how to prepare a disaster supply checklist, an emergency supply kit for pets, as well as an evacuation plan that includes pet-friendly hotels and emergency animal shelters along the way.
