Partnerships, planning and protocol are vital to emergency sheltering
Disasters are inherently chaotic. Whether it’s a flood or a hurricane, everything can change at a moment’s notice. In large-scale cruelty seizures, the scene can be equally as crazy, especially when you’re looking after hundreds of animals and people are working around the clock. Emergency sheltering requires different resources and protocols than permanent sheltering, and when you’re preparing for it, you’ll need to consider everything from supplies to staffing to intake. Through planning and partnerships, you can bring order to chaos and better help the animals in your care.
