Evacuation Instructions

220 Taylor Street, Monrovia, CA 91016

In cases of emergency when you need to evacuate your location, prepare yourself and your pet:

Identification Sheet: include your name, your dog’s name and description, address you are evacuating, location where you are going with phone number if you have it, address and telephone numbers for you and for your emergency contacts.

  • Leash, Collar and Tags with identification as well as microchip tag
  • Crate or Travel kennel (with litter box if a cat) with water bottle (or bowl)
  • Vet Records (license and vaccinations)
  • Any special instructions for your pet’s care written down labeled with pet’s name
  • Food and Water (enough for three days)
  • Doo bags
  • Optional: Familiar blanket (that you may not get back) for your pet

Label all materials with your name, the pet’s name and your phone number

You may not have all these things available — but don’t delay when you get an evacuation order: when it is time to go, use whatever is practical, like a belt or a tie as a leash.

When you need to – GO!

When you have recovered and get back home, assess what worked and what didn’t so you can prepare for next time.  Make it a priority to replenish or prepare a kit for you and each pet.  You’ll be ready for next time!

When you leave your pet at a shelter, keep with you:

  • Copies of Photos (one of your pet and one with you with your pet)
  • Copies of Vet and ID records
  • Location and phone number of place where you left your pet


Take a picture of you with your dog when you are at the evacuation shelter if you can.

Wonder Dog Ranch will take dogs, cats, birds, and small mammals if in self-contained crates. Dogs already enrolled at Wonder Dog Ranch will be allowed in the cage-free areas for exercise and relaxation; others will be taken out of their crates individually as time allows.

There is no charge for animals coming from evacuation areas.
