Pet Friendly Evacuation Shelters for Hurricane Irma

Pet-friendly shelters are designed to accommodate household pets during an evacuation. All pet-friendly shelters require pre-registration of pets, proof of residency within the evacuation zone, and current medical and vaccination records for each pet. While in the shelter, owners are responsible for the feeding, care, clean-up, and behavior of their pets. Shelter openings are incident-specific. Never go to a shelter unless local officials have announced it is open and you have filled out the pre-registration form. See below for a list of pet-friendly shelters opening for Hurricane Irma. It will continue to be updated as more shelters are announced.

Georgia State Parks
Georgia State Parks are open to all evacuees at no cost and no pet fees. They are waiving the parking fee for evacuees. They are allowing pets in all cabins and cottages and waiving the additional pet fee. "Once all cabins, yurts and campsites fill, we welcome evacuees to “dry camp” at no cost. Areas for “dry camping” will include parking lots, fields, group shelters and similar locations. Parks not in the affected area are accepting evacuees until they reach maximum capacity. Access will be provided to fresh water and comfort stations. Please bring supplies for camping and preparing meals." Beginning Saturday morning, all parks and historic sites east of I-95, and some nearby parks, will be closed due to Hurricane Irma.
