Hello community members! As many of you know, the COVID-19 situation is evolving rapidly. With heavy hearts, we have had to make drastic changes within our shelter to continue caring for the animals we all love and keep our community safe. Please see our changes listed below. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to call us! Our phone line’s will remain open during this time. 360-577-0151.
Currently allowed:
Redemptions (must call first to come in, our lobby doors will be locked).
Stray drop off
Emergencies
Animal control will operate on a limited basis. Meaning they will only be responding to emergency calls which will include aggressive animals, bite reports, law enforcement assistance, and neglect/cruelty cases.
Food pick up if a family is in need
Humane Euthanasia
Donations (Please call first or you can knock on lobby door but keep items outside and we can come get them)
Foster’s or fostering to adopt (fostering to adopt will be extended from the normal 7 day period to 14 days).
Discontinued for the next 14 days:
Adoptions (We will be keeping already scheduled appointments, please call us to make sure you already have this scheduled).
Owner released animals (TRUE emergencies are allowed, but please remember, companion pets do NOT spread COVID-19, and this is not a reason we will accept for owner released animals).
No stray pick up of healthy animals at this time, and no responding to barking/nuisance complaints. If you have found a stray animal, you may bring it to our shelter. Please call first.
No public visitor’s (just to visit is not allowed at this time).
Please remember, our shelter workers and animal control officers are working on keeping the public safe, and are also running low on masks, gloves, and safety glasses. We can always use donations of these items, and food/enrichment items/toys to help care for the animals! We will continue taking donations in any form (monetary, in-kind, etc). as this is how we care for the animals we love!
Fostering a pet is a great way to get through this quarantine period, please contact us if you are interested in this.
Remember to stay safe, stay inside, and wash your hands. Thank you for your continued support of our animals and staff.
