Evacuation Information

Pet carrier

If it is not safe for you, it is not safe for your pet! Take all your beloved family members with you when you leave.

There are many ways that you can be prepared to keep your pet safe during an emergency. According to Citrus County Animal Services, the first thing you should do is have your pet micro-chipped and do this right away, don't wait for an approaching storm. Hurricane Katrina displaced over 8000 animals, most of them never found their owner. Microchipping and registering your pet nationally is the only positive way to identify a pet without being physically present to identify them.
