paw_print.jpg Make sure that your pets are current on their vaccinations. Even during an emergency, pet shelters may require proof of vaccines. Please request a vaccinationcertificate from our office to have for your records.

If you must evacuate for any type of emergency, don't leave your pets behind.

If you are going to a friend or family members home, or to a hotel or motel, make sure you can bring your pet with you. 

Not all hotel and motels are pet friendly, even during an emergency.
