Resource Links - Information

The hurricane shelters listed here may not all open during a state of emergency. They are opened as needed. If possible, staying with family or friends outside an evacuation zone is your first and best option. Please monitor our website, local television stations or call Broward County at 954-831-4000 for actual shelter openings. Emergency shelters are a service of the Broward County Commission and the Broward County School Board.

If you plan on sheltering with your pet, you must stay at Broward County’s pet-friendly shelter at Millennium Middle School in Tamarac, operated by the Humane Society of Broward County and the American Red Cross. This is a pet-friendly shelter only and not a mass-care shelter. The shelter is available to residents with pets who either live in an evacuation area or a mobile home anywhere in Broward County. Pre-registration is required. Call the Broward County Humane Society at 954-989-3977 for any additional information.  Large Animal Registry
