NCESF-11 Animal Protection (page 152 of the pdf):
The purpose of this appendix is to help protect domesticated and wild animal resources, public health, food supply, and environmental resources. This appendix will also ensure the humane care and treatment of animals during disasters in order to increase compliance by citizens who may disregard evacuation recommendations due to an inability to evacuate their companion animals.
Animal Protection actions will be aimed at all animals, whether owned, stray, or domestic, that may need help during disaster situations.
