MEET YOUR LOCAL
EMERGENCY RESPONSE TEAM

  • What are your County’s current animal sheltering plans?
  • What type of sheltering is your County planning?
    • Emergency – Displaced pets only, often at a fairground or an evacuated SPCA.
    • Co-location – People and pets housed separately at same site.
    • Co-Habitation – People and pets stay together.
  • Do they clear shelters ahead of a disaster? If yes, who transports the pets?
  • Do they have volunteer programs for people to assist during emergency animal sheltering? How can you participate?
  • If a donated AKC Pet Disaster Relief trailer is being deployed, what is the emergency shelter address and who is the emergency shelter contact?
  • Are there any other local, 501c3 organizations helping shelter displaced pets?

After your successful meeting, designate a Club Contact to work directly with your County.
