To ensure everyone’s safety when visiting us at our shelter, spay/neuter clinic, and thrift shop, we have installed sneeze-guards at payment counters, we are limiting the number of people inside each of our locations at one time, keeping surfaces sanitized, have posted safety signage, and our staff/volunteers will be wearing masks inside.  Thank you for your continued support and patience while we navigate these changes for everyone’s safety.
