During a Hurricane

Emergency Pet Sheltering

For emergencies please be proactive and have a plan in place prior to using the Town animal shelter.  Have a kennel or family member lined up and ready to transport in advance of the emergency.  If that is not possible we need them in a carrier well marked with name of the animal and owner.  Additionally, have an index card filled out with name, address and best phone number of owner, name description of cat/dog, list of medications and current rabies vaccination status.
