ST. PETERSBURG – The St. Petersburg Judicial Building, located at 545 First Ave. N. in St. Petersburg, will serve as a shelter for people and their pets during mandatory evacuations only. Preregistration will be required.
The shelter is intended for pet owners who have no other options and are at risk if they stay home with their pets. Space is limited.
Reservations will be given to pet owners living in mobile homes or evacuation levels A, B or C – in that order – until the shelter is filled.
Cats and dogs will be the only animals accepted. Pet owners must bring a locking carrier or cage for cats and dogs and a leash for each animal. Carriers should be large enough for the animal to stand and turn around. Pets must have a current Pinellas County license and rabies vaccination.
Registration forms are available online at www.pinellascounty.org or by calling 582-2150 to leave a message requesting one by mail.
