If You Have to Evacuate to a Shelter, Many in New York and New Jersey Will Allow You to Bring Your Pets

BabblePets (Photo Credit: iStockphoto): New York City’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg has just announced mandatory evacuations in low-lying areas of the city. There are 65 shelters ready throughout the city, and pets will be welcome. Remember, if you’re not safe in your home, neither is your pet, and you shouldn’t leave Fido and Fluffy behind.

In other areas, however, separate pet shelters are opening up.

In Long Island, specific pet shelters have been set up in cooperation with the SPCA, says Newsday.

In Connecticut, rules vary by town as to whether pets are allowed. Note that some town shelters will require you to show proof of the animal’s registration and current vaccination record. For a breakdown by town, see NBC Connecticut’s website.

In New Jersey, not all shelters are pet-friendly. Some in Atlantic County are pet-friendly, some are not. In Cape May County, an animal shelter opened in Lower Township at noon today. Animal sheltering trailers will be set up at two other locations in the county.

If the shelters near you are not pet-friendly, try calling your veterinarian’s office, local kennels, and animal rescue centers to see if they have any kennel availability. If you’re heading to a hotel or motel, you can search for pet-friendly accommodations here.

Whether you’re bringing your pet with you to a shelter, a friend’s home, or a hotel, be prepared. Owners should bring their pets’ carriers and crates; and pet owners should bring with them any supplies that may be needed. For an excellent, comprehensive list of supplies to take with you, see Danielle Sullivan’s post, What to Put in Your Pet’s Emergency Disaster Pack.

The Suffolk SPCA, on Long Island, has two locations that allow owners to stay in the same shelter as their animals open and functioning. One is at Suffolk Community College Eastern Campus, located on Riverhead Speonk Road in Riverhead, and the other is the Brentwood Recreational Center at 99 Third Avenue in Brentwood. These shelters operate on a first come, first serve basis and can fit approximately 250 people and their pets in each. Animals allowed in the shelters are dogs, cats and birds.

N.J. pets welcome at hurricane evacuation shelters

Good Job Governor Chris Christy!!

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!!

Dogs of Distressed Gulf Families Land in NJ

August 15, 2010 – 1:43 PM | by: Peter Doocy

In the wake of the BP disaster in the gulf region, many people are being forced to give up their pets because they no longer have the resources to take care of them.  As a result, shelters in the area are overwhelmed, and are now sending dogs to other states in an effort to save their lives.  “Its kind of sad and our heart kind of breaks, because you can tell these people really love their pets,” said Charlotte Bass-Lilly with Animal Rescue New Orleans.  “It’s kind of shades of Katrina again.”

This week, the largest pet transport so far took place: 94 dogs to eight shelters in New Jersey.  Some of them landed at St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center in Madison, New Jersey, and they are some of the Garden State’s most popular new residents.  “The community support and outpouring for them has just been incredible.  It was kind of like a bar on St. Patrick’s Day, and we had 20 in and 20 out, because we had so many people waiting to see them.”

Debbie and Andrew Silberstein brought their kids Zachary and Noah to St. Huberts today, where they adopted Sasha Bee, who just last week lived in a completely different part of the country.

Mom Debbie sympathizes with those forced to part ways with their pets.  “It’s very sad that these people had to do that and we feel sorry,” she said.  “But they should know that we’ll give this dog lots of love and attention and we’ll really love her like part of our family.”

The dogs here at St. Huberts have been through a lot since the explosion on the Deepwater Horizon rig.  One dog, Casper, was surrendered to a New Orleans shelter because his owner started working with BP to clean up oil, and no longer had the time to take care of him.  Another dog, Yoda, is here because his owner was forced to downsize to an apartment that did not accept animals.

The dogs were squeezed onto a big rig operated by the Humane Society, and with two drivers, made the trip from the bayou to a suburb of the Big Apple in 18 hours.

The most striking thing about seeing these canines up close is that they are all very good looking, and very well behaved.  These aren’t dogs from the street.  Until recently, they were members of families.  And anyone that rescues one of these dogs will be doing a great service to those distressed families in the gulf: ensuring that the pet they love finds a loving new owner.

If you are interested in rescuing one of these resilient animals, go to www.petfinder.com, or www.sthuberts.or

I am absolutely against government bailouts and the stimulus (I,II, or whatever number we are one now), but if we are going to spend this money and spend it on bridges to nowhere, an airport only used by one of our cheating U.S. Senators and send billions of our TARP money to European banks… there should never be a need or incident of another pet/animal being euthanized because “we” couldn’t wait to find them a home or take care of them.  Demand No More Killing of Pets… and some of that bailout money that lined the fat cats’ pockets to go to animals.  There should also never be a shortage of many of children’s homes and abused or abandoned children.  Let us stand up and stop the insanity!!  There is $421 billion dollars unaccounted for and leftover from the “crisis created” stimulus I Bill.  Now about some of that goes to homeless and abused children and pets/animals instead of politicians and International bankers?

N.J. Shelter Starts ‘Obamacare’ for Pets

N.J. Shelter Starts 'Obamacare' for Pets

Liberty Humane Society officials are calling it their version of “Obamacare” — but for pets.
The Jersey City shelter is opening a low-cost Wellness Clinic tomorrow, which will be open every Thursday, 5 to 8 p.m., shelter officials said.

“Almost every day someone comes into the center to surrender or euthanize an animal because they can’t afford a vet bill,” Executive Director Joanna Hopkinson said. “We try to do as much as we can to help them.”

The clinic will offer low-cost rabies, distemper, Bordatella, Lyme and FeLV vaccinations for $20 each.

Wellness tests, which check for Lyme disease and heartworm among other things, will be offered for $30 for cats and dogs.

The clinic will offer $35 micro-chipping and $15 nail clipping.

The clinic will be limited to routine preventative services.

“We are delighted to be an affordable and easily accessible resource for the area’s pet owners,” Director of Development Janet Russell said. “We realize that the proper care of an animal can be expensive and want to provide an affordable option for wellness care.”

Low-cost spay and neutering for dogs and cats is also available and costs an average of $85 but varies depending on the size of the animal. Appoints are necessary.

The clinic will be held in the mobile spay/neuter vet unit outside the shelter at 235 Jersey City Blvd., across from Liberty Science Center.

For information call (201) 546-4147 or visit www.libertyhumane.org.

Goldens Bearing Gifts

Goldens - Amer SpectorCute story out of:  Sea Isle, N.J. — The big news here is that Simba, our one-and-a-half-year-old golden retriever, just won “Best of Show” in this year’s dog show on the boardwalk.

“Paws on the Promenade” is not exactly the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show at Madison Square Garden, but he had dozens of good competitors, including five other top-notch goldens, a beautiful Bernese mountain dog, a cute Jack Russell terrier, and a big black poodle wearing a nylon net tutu.

Simba won $155 in prizes, consisting of two free tickets to the upcoming “Great Balls of Fire” concert on the Ocean City Music Pier (I don’t know if dogs are allowed, or if he can get a date), a $100 gift certificate at Parkway Vet in Cape May Court House (we donated it back for someone adopting a pet), and a $25 gift certificate from Pawsitively Pets, a local dog-toy store. Simba loves toys! His favorites are tennis balls, some furry stuffed squirrels and a musical Christmas tree.

The contest is sponsored by Beacon Animal Rescue, a local no-kill adoption shelter. They make money in the local beach communities in a unique way, offering a “Goose Chaser” service: “We’ll bring our dogs to you and let them chase the geese off your land. The geese find somewhere else to go, our dogs get exercise, and you get your land back. Small donation requested.”

Back home in Pittsburgh, Simba is fascinated with what began as our backyard bird feeder but ended up as a hanging basket full of squirrels. We bought him a family of toy stuffed squirrels of his own.

Goldens love to bring gifts and each day Simba carries one of his stuffed pet squirrels out to the basket of real squirrels. The floor underneath the hanging squirrel basket is littered each day with an assortment of toys and gifts from Simba. Perhaps these are a sort of peace offering to the real squirrels, we thought, until one morning we found him on the back porch with one of the squirrels squirming, feet flying and pinned to the ground. Simba had him by the neck (the squirrel got away after we yelled for Simba to back off).

Simba can act tough, but he’s afraid of the dark. When we let him out at night in the backyard, he treads cautiously, looking around for any monsters or giant squirrels that might be lurking back there, with his musical Christmas tree playing “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” to ward off any evil spirits.

Simba’s toughest challenge, though, is our bed, which he has always thought of as his permanent puppy pile. But our 9-year-old golden, Chloe, thinks he has outgrown the pile, and so do we. So Simba is kicked out of bed most nights and left to fend for himself alone around the bedroom.

To keep him off the bed, Chloe makes a face at him with her eyes glowering and her teeth bared. That used to work for her with our other golden retriever, Nugget, but Simba simply won’t give up. He brings us crazy things in the middle of the night, which to him are sort of like hostess gifts. Some nights, crying and whimpering, he brings us his stuffed squirrels.

One night he jumped into bed between us with his largest stuffed squirrel, soaking wet, pushing it on our faces. We had no idea if he had left it out in the rain or if he had been dipping it in the toilet.

Last week, after being kicked out of bed by Chloe’s growl and evil face, he jumped back into bed crying and carrying in his mouth — the bathroom rug!

We could have told the people at “Paws on the Promenade” that there was no getting ahead of this dog (his Dad’s name is Bad-As-I-Wannabe). Simba came to the contest late and had to sign up in the only remaining category, “Best of Show.” He walked over to the judge, laid his head gently on her knee and looked up into her face with his soft dark-chocolate eyes. She patted his head and said, “He’s so sweeeeet!” As she started to melt, he laid his head on her chest and gently licked her neck.

“What’s his number,” she asked. There I was with a big number “35” around my neck but she couldn’t take her eyes off Simba. Said the male judge sitting next to her, “Boy, that dog knows how to win.”
