I don't live there, I'm just curious. CNN just showed people getting on a bus. I'd assume they don't allow pets due to space...I wonder if there are provisions for pet owners in another way (perhaps private groups).

I always think about pet owners because there was no way I would have evacuated w/o my dog when I lived in FL - the time I did evacuate (for Charley) I booked a hotel right at first mention of the storm heading our way. Dicey gamble as the dates/times kept changing.

So many people won't leave w/o pets, and when you're on an island that would make a pet-friendly shelter obsolete, I can't even imagine what that's like.

BEFORE TROPICAL STORM FORCE WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO ARRIVE.
THE OFFICIAL MONROE COUNTY SHELTER AT FLORIDA INTERNATIONAL
UNIVERSITY...JUST OFF THE FLORIDA TURNPIKE AT U.S. ROUTE 41...
TAMIAMI TRAIL...IN MIAMI WILL OPEN AT 8 AM THIS MORNING...BUT WILL
NOT ALLOW PETS.


The above is posted on the nhc.noaa.gov site. I guess unless someone is
making their arrangements outside of the shelter option, pets are not
allowed. This is one of the main reason so many lower income
people don't evacuate....but I sure can understand why a shelter couldn't
take on a bunch of pets.

I'm with you, Scorp~I would NEVER abandon a pet. It's inhumane and I think it's time that the shelters and others realize that. If they want to order evacuations, they need to make arrangements for our furry friends, too.
