We are unable to accept any healthy dogs, cats or kittens at this time due to the situation with Covid-19. 

Although it is not ideal or popular, at this time we are asking the public to leave found animals in place, as they may already be close to home and found by their owners. Adult cats and dogs should be left in place. Always check pets for ID if you are able to do so safely. We recommend using social media sites such as NextDoor and FidoAlert to help locate an owner. If you are able to safely secure a dog and provide for its care while looking for the owner, please do so. Social media sites can also help you find another community member to hold on to the pet, if you are not able to keep it secured. Please visit our Reporting a Found Pet Page for more information and resources.

Kittens should be left in place as they are waiting for their mother to return. If you choose to take in kittens, we will not be able to accept them at the shelter. Please see the following resources to help you care for kittens.
