The New Jersey Department of Agriculture encourages farmers and other residents to be prepared to take measures to protect their pets and livestock in the event of a storm.

Those who do not already have emergency plans in place may visit www.ready.nj.gov/, where there are basic preparedness tips and steps listed to protect animals. 

The state's County Animal Response Teams are instrumental in the sheltering and rescue of pets during emergencies. They are always looking for volunteers.
