PET FRIENDLY SHELTER
Miami-Dade County has a shelter where hurricane evacuees can be safe during a storm — and be with their pets! County officials say they’ve designated a county pet-friendly hurricane shelter. People and pets — dogs, cats, birds, and other small animals — living in an evacuation zone can ride out the storm there, so long as they’ve pre-registered. You should pre-register by calling (786) 331-5354 for the necessary forms. All animals must have current vaccination, and medical records.

In the event of an evacuation Miami-Dade Transit will serve as emergency vehicles to help residents get to and from hurricane evacuation centers. Bus pick-up locations will be labeled by signs that read “Emergency Evacuation Bus Pick-up Site.” All buses functioning as evacuation vehicles will have displays that read “Emergency Evacuation.” The buses will only travel between the emergency evacuation bus pick-up site and the hurricane evacuation center. Pick up zones will be determined individually for each storm.
