EWING — New Jersey pet owners are welcome along with their furry friends at the state’s hurricane evacuation shelters.

Gov. Chris Christie said the state is prepare to welcome cats and dogs to the emergency shelters of last resort meant for people.

"No one should be staying in their homes in an endangered area because they feel like they can’t bring their pets with them," Christie said.

But, he warned, pet owners should come with all the supplies needed to care for their pets.

"I can’t believe as governor I’m actually having to say this, bring the kitty litter box and you know the pooper-scooper and all the rest of that stuff," Christie said.

WOOF: Cats & Dogs (any pets) can get stressed when there is tension, stress &/or arguing between human household members (and will be worse in a shelter situation). So be kind to one another!!
