We plan to reopen the shelter on June 3 with normal hours. We will be doing all activities BY APPOINTMENT ONLY and MASKS WILL BE REQUIRED. At this time, we plan to do only adoptions and intakes. We appreciate all of you who love to spend time with the cats but we believe it is best for all if we don’t begin allowing that now. If you are interested in adopting, we encourage you to check out the website and see who is looking for a forever home. Then you can fill out an adoption form prior to making an appointment. Once you are at the shelter, we hope you adopt the cat you saw on the website but there in no obligation. But we do ask that you only make an adoption appointment if you are seriously interested in adopting. Intake will function off a waiting list as always but we will assign you a time to make the drop-off rather than just a general timeframe. We think these procedures will allow us to begin operations in a safe manner but if issues arise we may make changes.
