Animals in emergencies

Your animals are your responsibility. It is up to you to plan ahead and prepare for the safety and welfare of your pets and livestock.

Most emergency shelters do not allow pets but there are undercover carparks where you can shelter in your car with pets as long as they are properly restrained.

Your safety, and that of your family, is paramount. You should not risk your life trying to find and protect pets.

Make sure your pets and animals are properly identified with a name tag, microchip or brand.
