If you evacuate to an Emergency Management Agency shelter:

  • You can drop off your pet at the Emergency Animal Shelter.
  • The shelter is located at 1716 North Shelby Oaks Drive, Suite 1 (map)
  • Right next door to the Emergency Animal Shelter, the ASPCA and Pet Smart are teaming up to send pet supply donations across the devastated region.
