Shelter Opening Its Doors To Pets During Hurricane

County animal shelters want pet-owners to be proactive in preparing for Hurricane Irene.

The Pitt County Animal Shelter says it can house pets if owners are forced to evacuate. Pets must have rabies tags and proof of immunizations, and an identification tag on the pet's collar if possible.

The shelter also suggests bringing clearly labeled collars, leashes, crates and carriers. If the animal is on a special diet they ask owners to provide the food. In order for pets to have the comforts of home, they recommend leaving blankets, towels or other bedding.
