As Hurricane Sandy continues to cut a swath of destruction, Riverhead residents are making the decision of whether to go stay with friends and family or ride out the storm in the town's shelter at Riverhead High School.
Prepared with a go-bag, food, water and medication, the question remains: Would you evacuate to a shelter if you couldn't take your pet?
Currently, there is a pet-friendly shelter open for residents at Suffolk County Community College's eastern campus in Riverside. The Riverhead Town shelter at Riverhead High School is not equipped to allow pets.
What would you do if you were forced to evacuate and you couldn't bring your pets? During Hurricane Katrina, it was a heartbreaking question many families were forced to face.
Riverhead Patch wants to know what you think: Would you head for shelter without your pets? What have you done to make sure your pets are prepared for Hurricane Sandy?
