Now is the time to decide what you will do with your furry family – before a storm is headed our way. There is at least one pet-friendly evacuation shelter in all three of the south Florida counties – Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach. You can also check this informative database:

Broward County pet-friendly shelter info: The nearest pet-friendly shelter is Millennium Middle School, 5803 N.W. 94th Ave., in Tamarac. Those wanting to use the shelter during an emergency must pre-register because of space limitations by calling 954-266-6871. Owners are required to show proof that they reside in a County evacuation zone and that their pets have up-to-date vaccinations, including a rabies shot.


Palm Beach County provides a pet friendly shelter at the West Boynton Recreation Center. Pre-registration is required by calling 561.233.1266

The Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League in West Palm Beach has space available. Pre-registration is required by calling 561.472.8874

Hurricane season begins on June 1 and runs till November 30. The past few years have taught us a lot in hurricane preparation and safety and as pets become more and more embedded into our families, we learn that these things extend to them as well. Just like you prepare your family and home, prepare and take care of your pets during these storms. ONLYforPETLOVERS hope that you will take advantage of our Hurricane Survival Guide for Pets and keep them safe and healthy this storm season.

South Floridians can already take advantage of our Pet-friendly Shelter and Resource Guide for this hurricane season. Here, you will find helpful information, contacts and tips for pet parents, all spanning the tri-county area. In the coming days, ONLYforPETLOVERS will roll out similar guides for all major areas threatened by the hurricane season, including the Gulf Coast, South Texas, the Carolinas and Central Florida and the Keys.

While many prepare for hurricane season, others have been enduring other natural disasters such as tornadoes and wildfires. Stay posted to ONLYforPETLOVERS for pet parent guides for other potential emergencies and disasters.

Please visit to learn how to take proper care of your pet in the event of a storm.

ONLYforPETLOVERS wants all pet parents to hope for the best and prepare for the worst. Stay safe this hurricane season! Please feel free to forward this information to anyone that you know in hurricane territory.
