Pet Friendly Shelter Tips:
Hernando County Animal Services tips for Pet Friendly Sheltering during declared emergencies. Our citizens and their animals are housed in separate sections of the designated shelter(s). Designated shelters are typically Hernando County Schools. Animals will be housed in crates in a different location than where general population is located. If you need to seek shelter with your pet during a declared emergency the following list will help you be prepared:
Bring your own appropriately sized crate (County resources are limited)
Bring all your dogs required medications
Bring several days’ worth of your animals’ food
Ensure your dog is current on all vaccinations
Bring your own leash and collar. Ensure your dog is trained to walk on a leash
Bring any toys and/or bedding that will make your animal comfortable.
If your animal is fearful or shy, bring sheets to cover the crate while still allowing airflow.
If you bring a crate place something unique on it to distinguish it from others.
Understand that your animal will not be housed in the same section as you; however, you will have access to your animal.
Do not buy different snacks or food for the animal that they are not accustomed to, this will often cause the animals to have digestive issues; particularly when they are already stressed.
If your animal has any propensity to bite animals or humans, please obtain and utilize a muzzle.
Bring spray cleaner, paper towels etc., to be able to clean your animal’s crate.
