Leaving home for a storm shelter used to mean extra hassle and worry for pet owners, but both Miami-Dade and Broward counties offer shelters that welcome pets as well as people.
There are two in Miami-Dade: the E. Darwin Fuchs Pavilion at the Miami-Dade County Fair & Exposition Center, 10901 SW 24th St., can accommodate your crated cat, dog, small mammal or caged bird, and has a capacity of 350 people and 150 animals. And Dr. Michael M. Krop Senior High, 1410 County Line Rd., Miami, serves the northern part of the county, and has the same rules. There’s no need to preregister.
