WHAT DO I DO WITH MY HOUSEHOLD PETS OR FARM ANIMALS?
- Contact the Beaufort County Animal Control Office at 843-846-3905 for information on caring for your pets during hurricanes.
- If you plan to use an emergency public shelter, you should make other arrangements for your pet's protection and safety. The shelters will not allow pets.
- Ask dependable friends or relatives who live further inland, away from the coast or river areas, if you and your pet(s) could stay with them during a storm emergency.
- Call motels if you plan to leave your house and take your pet with you during an evacuation. You may wish to check with several local motels away from the coast or river areas. Ask if they allow pets, and if so, if there are any restrictions on size and number of pets allowed.
- Do not leave any pet outside or tied up during a hurricane.
