June 2, 2020: New Policies for Walk-Ins & Appointments

Updated: Jun 14

Beginning June 2nd, our shelter will be open to walk-ins without the need for appointments for those who are interested in adopting one of our animals. To expedite the adoption process, please complete an adoption application online. It is important to note that in order to maintain proper safe distances, we will only be able to accommodate ten visitors in our shelter at one time. For your protection and ours, we ask that customers wear a mask. If you don't have a mask, we can provide one. Also, for the safety of your child, children 12 and under are not permitted at the shelter at this time.

Once you arrive at the shelter, please check in at our front desk so that we can quickly fill you in on what areas of our shelter are open. We'll have walking lanes on the floors marked with tape, and will require to sanitize your hands as you move from room to room and after handling an animal. If you'd still prefer to schedule an appointment, give us a call!


Our intake policy remains the same - please phone us if you have a sick or injured cat, and we will arrange a drop off time & meet you in our parking lot.

Lastly, a word to our volunteers - if you have volunteered in the past, we'd love your help! At this time, please phone the shelter to schedule a time for you to volunteer. We will brief you with the proper safety precautions, and will ask that you wear a mask at all times while on shelter property. Unfortunately, we are not able to take new volunteers at this time - training volunteers would not allow us to maintain proper social distancing. We hope to accommodate new volunteers soon.


We appreciate our supporters understanding and complying with these requests - we are still very concerned with the health of our shelter employees, and our animals are, too!
