Hurricane Issac is now expected to be a category 1 or 2 hurricane when it hits the US coast – with flooding in South Florida and the Keys, then a potential landing from Pensacola to New Orleans. Please be ready to evacuate your dogs if necessary. You can follow hurricane information at this link and for pet-friendly lodging if you need to relocate click here. During storm evacuations, you may be able to take your dog to a hotel that is normally not pet-friendly, they often make exceptions. So if there is a more convenient hotel that is not pet-friendly regularly it doesn’t hurt to try to give them a call. Some of the evacuation shelters may be pet-friendly in your area.
