Urgent—Vaccinate and Register Your Pet--It's the Law!
Be sure your pet is current on his rabies vaccination and that he is registered with the County. The pet-friendly hurricane shelter and most boarding kennels will not allow your pet to stay with them if he is not properly vaccinated and registered.
More importantly, pet registration and the Broward County Rabies Registration tag help to prove that you are the owner of the pet and helps identify him if he becomes lost. Make sure your dog or cat wears a secure collar with the Broward County Rabies Registration tag and a name tag with a current phone number AT ALL TIMES! A registered microchip is also recommended in case your pet loses his collar and tags. To register your pet's microchip for FREE go to www.found.org
If your dog or cat is in need of a rabies vaccination and Broward County Rabies Registration tag or microchip, you and your pet are invited to attend one of our upcoming neighborhood Rabies Clinic events.
OPTION 3: Check to see if your veterinarian is offering boarding services.
OPTION 4: Stay with a relative or friend who lives outside of the storm/disaster zone. Bring your Pet Survival Kit.
OPTION 5: If you live in an evacuation zone or a mobile home, you may stay at the Broward County pet-friendly shelter:
Space is limited and pre-registration is required. To pre-register, call the Humane Society of Broward County at 954-989-3977. Pets must be current on their vaccinations and must be registered with the County. Keep a secure collar with current identification on your pet at all times and bring your Pet Survival Kit. Special Note: If you take refuge in the pet-friendly shelter, you must stay with your pet and care for him while there. The shelter DOES NOT operate as a boarding facility.
