Very good post! We have two dogs that always travel with us and we have had a lot of hotels turn us down.
Read what happened in KY.So you decided to bug out to a motel with your pet.
Interesting. I wonder how they would force everyone in the hotel to leave if they refused...at gun point...?I helped a friend bug out to a pet friendly hotel as Hurricane Ike approached. Getting in was fine. At the height of the approach of the storm, the power failed at their location. The next thing they heard was the manager going room to room telling people that they had to leave, into the storm, as the hotel chain policy forbade residents when thre was no power.
While that is very good advice, I'd also add that one plan for a Bug Out Shelter further away from the forecast track of the Storm.I advise checking on this policy in advance with any hotel that you are considering for shelter.
Care and feeding of a travel trailer can be intimidating to some.Another idea is to buy a travel trailer
You are right. Especially a used one as it has someone else's problems. On the other hand most folks on here seem pretty handy so I am suspicious it is well within their abilities to keep one operational.Care and feeding of a travel trailer can be intimidating to some.
This is very good to know. I know way to many people who will not evacuate during hurricane warnings because they cannot take their pets.The National Incident Management System (NIMS) has mandated that all localities develop and implement a plan for sheltering pets as well as people.
As a pet owner, allow me to say thank you from everyone who has pets!Prior to my retirement, we developed a pet sheltering plan with the help and assistance of several local vets. In fact, we designated one entire corridor of one of our high schools, which is also a designated shelter for people.
