Pets trickle in to shelters as Irene pushes north

Dispatches from the twittersphere: As Hurricane Irene makes her way up the coast at least a handful of Philadelphia pet owners aren't taking any chances:

@mayornutter tweets several hours ago that 60 people, plus a dog and two turtles arrived at the Bartram High School shelter. Nutter also tweets that all Philadelphia shelters will accept animals.

Another tweeter points out that pet owners should be aware of the national Center for Lost Pets, an online registry sponsored by the Humane Society of the United States, that gives both those who've lost pets and those who've found them a central place to file reports.

(We hadn't heard of the center before so we don't know how well it works but it certainly sounds like a great resource in times of disaster - or not.)
