Evacuating During a Hurricane with Your Pets

Evacuating Pets in a Hurricane Often during a hurricane, families prioritize preparing their homes, belongings, and food – but what about their pets? If a hurricane is coming your way and you’re being told to evacuate, there are several ways that you can plan for the total safety of your pet. First, you’ll want to decide where you and your family will stay. Since many hotels and shelters don’t allow pets, your best bet may be to evacuate in your own vehicle. In this case, you can pack the following in a waterproof, easy-to-carry container:

  • A secure pet carrier, cage or crate, and a leash or harness
  • Pet bedding, toys, and treats
  • A muzzle, since pets can become anxious and bite
  • An up-to-date identification tag on your pet’s collar or proof of ownership, such as a picture with you and your pet
  • Photocopies and/or USB of medical records
  • One week’s worth of food and water for each pet, including dishes, spoons, and a can opener
  • Clean-up supplies, including paper towels, newspaper, kitty litter with pan and scoop for cats, and disposable bags for waste

Furthermore, there is a free ASPCA mobile app that shows pet parents exactly what to do in case a hurricane or other natural disaster strikes. Through this app, you can learn what to do with your pet(s) before, after, or during a storm, including more detailed information regarding plans for birds, horses, reptiles, and other exotic pets. You will also be able to receive a personalized missing pet recovery kit, store and manage your pet’s health records, and more.

Our storm Tight experience has truly been a pleasure. The team was respectful of our property and minimized the mess even though it was raining off and on during the install. We will be proud to have a Storm Tight window sign in our front yard for some time to come.

The guys were great. It felt more like I was having friends over to help with the house than company paid to do it. The windows are so nice we're tempted to never put blinds up!

Living on a hurricane prone island, we replaced all 27 of our windows with Storm Tight hurricane windows. This summer we were pleasantly surprised by our electric bill. Last year, our bills ran over $500. This year, a little over $200.
