All,

I have been asked several times this week through my Facebook Weather page if I knew of or had a list of Public storm shelters that allowed for pets to come with their owners. I only know of one and it is in Arab at a Veterinarians office. I would like to compile a list and host it here.

If you know of a Shelter that allows for pets, post it and I will compile them into a single list.

Thanks,

Jay
