A whimper from the living room reminds you of the one family member you forgot; your precious dog. It's only now you realize though your human family is prepared, you furry little loved one is not. Your kids are in the car crying, and your wife is comforting them. You have no time to get any supplies for your dog. You clip his leash on and drag the frightened dog to the car.
Little do you know, your city's evacuation shelter, like many, only allow service animals.
There is no option, you take the leash off your dog and leave him outside hoping he can fend for himself.
It doesn't have to be like this.
It's 3:00am and an evacuation alarm sounds. Everyone is groggy, but you know you need to get your family to safety. You run to the closet. You grab your family's emergency kit, and the pet emergency kit; luckily, you were prepared. As your wife takes the kids to the car, you run to the living room and pull out the folding dog carrier. As advised by the CDC, you took the time to get your dog familiar with it. He runs inside, and you are able to carry your dog to the car without any hassle.
You know that the closest evacuation shelter is not pet friendly, but you planned ahead. You know that there is a pet friendly evacuation shelter a town over. Your entire family is safe.
