The New Jersey Department of Agriculture is the lead agency for Emergency Support Function 11 (ESF11) in the state emergency-response plan, and is responsible for all animals when disaster strikes. Planning to care for both livestock and pets in emergencies is an ongoing process involving state emergency responders and volunteers from throughout New Jersey who work to ensure people being evacuated from their homes can take their pets with them or otherwise provide safe shelter for them, and to ensure that farmers with livestock have plans to shelter large animals in place or at nearby fairgrounds. NJDA welcomes visitors to this website to contribute ideas or ask questions.
