people could try to find out if their emergency shelters allow them to bring their pets with them if not find out where you can bring your pet(s) if you have a mandatory evacuation . More emergency shelters are allowing people to bring their pets after what happen with Hurricane Katrina , too people refuse to evacuate when they realize they could not bring their pets with them to the emergency shelters . Pets owners could write to their representatives and try and to get them to allow pets to go with them to emergency shelters as in the long run this does save people and pets lives and people will not need to be rescues because they refused to abandon their pets in a storm etc. It would be wise to have all of your pets have a microchip and make sure it's updated if you had moved or have new phone# or a new vet. If you have birds you could have an ID band on it leg.
