****NOTICE! ALL PET OWNERS!
As a 1st responder, we are taught that folks who have to leave leave their pets behind, should leave them with 2-3 days of food and water inside their
homes with a large "PETS INSIDE. FOOD AND WATER"
sign on a front window/door easily seen from the street.
Hopefully, one of us will be able to feed and water them...prob only once...then they are on their own. And there is no guarantee anyone WILL come
in the 1st place. Depends on how many volunteer-responders are activated for your areas****
Most shelters cannot care for all pets, so dont count on it. If you do leave your pets somewhere, its you that will have to come back
there each day to care and clean for them. There is not enough responders, staff or volunteers to care for pets. Any place.
****Also...most shelters, boarding facilities etc in a crisis...will not let you bring your pets without current vaccinations., food, water, cages
