At all times, you are allowed to bring a pet in a carrier on MTA subways, buses, and trains. You must have the pet muzzled and controlled on a sturdy leash. When an evacuation order is declared, you can bring a legal pet too large for a carrier.
Make every effort to shelter your pets with friends or family outside of the evacuation area. Only legal pets will be allowed in evacuation centers. Service animals are always allowed.
If you bring your pet to an evacuation center, please bring supplies to care for your pet, including:
- A secure cage or carrier
- Proof of required shots
- Food and water
- A leash
- A muzzle
You are responsible for the feeding, clean up, and care of your pet at the center.
You do not need a cage or carrier for a service animal that helps people with disabilities.
