In Martin County, we recognize that people may not want to evacuate their residence or leave their pets behind if they live in an evacuation zone.
Martin County Emergency Management, in conjunction with the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast, has planned for a Domestic Pet Friendly Sheltering Program for the citizens of Martin County. The Humane Society of the Treasure Coast will house your pet at their facility for residents who are recommended or ordered to evacuate.
Pre-Registration is required due to limited capacity. To pre-register, you will need to fill out three forms and return them to the HSTC along with copies of your pet's veterinary records and proof of vaccinations. You can download the forms HERE or call the front desk at (772) 223-8822 to have all necessary forms sent to you.
The pre-registration application includes the following forms:
**Pets must have written proof of current vaccinations, identification and rabies tag. No sick animals will be accepted.
Once you have filled out the pre-registration paperwork, you can submit your application to the HSTC via:
The Humane Society of the Treasure Coast will begin boarding pets for First Responders as soon as they are called into active duty. The HSTC will begin boarding pets for those in evacuation zones once the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) officially declares an emergency and begins the evacuation of people in designated evacuation zones.
Space is limited! The Humane Society of the Treasure Coast can only house approximately 150 animals in addition to what is currently at the shelter.
Crate or cage large enough for your pet to stand up in and turn around
Food and treats
Blanket or towel to sleep on
Special diet food
