Los Angeles – Because flash floods threaten Los Angeles County, animals are at risk and could die when left behind during evacuations, and anyone who evacuates and intentionally abandons animals may be prosecuted.
Never leave animals outdoors, tied up, crated, caged, in hutches, or confined in any way, as they will be unable to flee rising waters. Anyone who sees animals in distress and is unable to help should note their locations and alert authorities immediately.
