Would you have felt better if there were ten? I mean really what is the magic number for you? Wow you can’t please some people. If someone stays in unsafe conditions due to a pet, then so be it. It is not up to the County to take care of you and your pets. Grow up and tend to it yourself.

There are only two pet friendly shelters out of all of those?!? If Katrina taught us anything, it is that people will not abandon their pets and instead put themselves in jeopardy as they stay in unsafe conditions. Come on NC, can’t you do better than that?

This is very true. I live in a mobile home and I will not leave if my dogs can’t come with me. No one wants this many even if they are in kennels.

It is based in the threat level of the storm and the expected number of people evacuating their homes. If the threat level increases and the two pet friendly locations become full, more will open to meet the need.

The news article said the following shelters will be open in Columbus county at 6:00pm today:

East Columbus High School, 32 Gator Lane, Lake Waccamaw
Edgewood Elementary School, 317 East Calhoun Street, Whiteville
Guideway Elementary School, 11570 Swamp Fox Highway East, Tabor City

That is still way ahead of the hurricane, but drive safely in case your area has extensive flooding.
