Your dog or cat is more than a pet: it is often a member of the family, so there is no question of leaving it behind if you have to evacuate your home in case of a natural disaster.

Because of hygiene and safety regulations, pets are not allowed in temporary evacuee shelters set up by the City. To solve this problem, the City of Beaconsfield has signed an agreement with Humane Society International /Canada, a national animal protection organization with expertise in natural disaster preparedness and response for companion animals displaced by hurricanes, tornados, flooding, earthquakes and other destructive acts of God.

In the eventuality of a natural disaster, HSC/Canada is committed to setting up and running safe emergency shelters to care for affected animals.
