Pet-Friendly Shelters in Florida

Pet-Friendly Shelters in Florida

Emergency shelters should only be used as a last resort. Many counties that can be hardest hit because they are low-lying (and therefore more susceptible to high tides and flooding) do not have shelters at all because of safety concerns. However, that said, a shelter still should be part of your emergency plan in case you run out of other options.

The shelters we list below are the ones we found in our research well before the hurricane season opens. Therefore, they will not necessarily represent all the available shelters in your area when a storm hits. Many shelters become available on an as-needed basis, and just because a shelter may be listed below does not always mean it will be open at the time of your particular weather emergency. It’s important for you to also check with local authorities as well as radio updates and newspapers.

With regard to state counties that do not make their shelters known until they open, we have also created a list (including their contact information) of those that set up temporary pet-friendly shelters during impending storm threats. Click More Shelter Info to see that list. The list also shows state counties that DO NOT allow pets in their emergency shelters.

The following shelters are pet-friendly and are within a 150-mile radius of your current location and should be used as a starting point for your early emergency planning. You can also use the dropdown menu to find pet friendly emergency shelters by state.
