LLIS Lesson Learned: Mass Care Response: Pet Shelter Co-Location with Human Shelters   [open pdf - 152KB]

"The After Action Report / Improvement Plan (AAR/IP) from the response to the June 2011 tornadoes in Massachusetts revealed that responders did not locate pet shelters near human shelters, creating distress for individuals with pets. The AAR/IP recommended that decisionmakers plan to co-locate pet and human shelters or plan for a way to transport people to pet shelters. The AAR/IP also recommended pet shelter planning efforts include improving awareness of available resources, such as local Disaster Animal Response Teams' (DART) capabilities."
