Tropical Storm Nicholas Updates

Heavy rain is expected throughout the entire Southeast Texas area and Tropical Storm Nicholas is expected to strengthen to a possible Category 1 Hurricane before reaching us tonight.    
Houston Humane Society wants to remind all pet owners what they need to be prepared with ahead of the storm.
Steps to take NOW:
  • Bring Them Inside – Make room for your pets indoors. Set aside some blankets or towels for your pet to lay on. Crate pets or secure them in a room where they feel safe during the storm.
  • Provide Safe & Dry Area – If unable to bring them inside, have the pet in a safe covered area on higher ground. Ensure all coverings are prepared to sustain high winds.  
  • Stock Up on Water, Food, and Medication – Ensure your pet has 2-week supply of food, water and necessary supplies.
  • Register Your Pet’s Microchip – Keep information updated. This will help you be re-united with your pet if he/she becomes lost and is turned in to a shelter or vet clinic.
  • Make a Plan and Have your Disaster Kit Ready – You want to be prepared if the storm impacts your area.
