  1. Vicki D says :

    Good information. The main challenge I had when preparing for the last hurricane was that I could not find out in advance which shelters would be accepting pets. The county indicated that the list of shelters would not be available until they were needed. My concern is that when the need arises, the power will be out and I will not be able to use the internet to access the shelter list. I was also worried when I heard that the animals would be kept outside in a van.
