Pet Friendly Shelters
For FEMA to provide post-disaster assistance funds to a County, that County is required to have a Pet Shelter available.
A Special Needs Shelter provides more care and supervision than a general shelter to help meet your special needs during an evacuation. To the extent possible under emergency conditions, the Special Needs Shelter will provide a safe sheltering environment and basic assistance to maintain your level of health.

Many Special Needs Shelters require you to pre-register and to reregister every year, please contact the Special Needs Shelter for your County to learn what you need to do:
