Pet Shelters

St. Johns County has two (2) Pet Friendly Shelters to meet the needs of our pet owners during an evacuation situation. The following two schools are designated as Pet Friendly Shelters:

Pre-registration is not required to go to a Public Pet Friendly Shelter. You only need to register if you need transportation assistance during an evacuation.

Pet owners are required to shelter with their pets and care for them. You may not drop off your pets and leave.

Farm animals and exotics (primates, snakes, spiders, insects, etc.) are not permitted at Pet Friendly Shelters.
