Public Notices > Animal Shelter goes back to "appointment only"

Notice Type Public Notice

Notice: Due to the recent surge in Covid-19 the shelter is back to operating by appointment only

The shelter is open for normal operations by appointment only. Appointments are scheduled from noon to 5pm on our open days.

  • Our cat and dog kennels will stay closed to the public for visits to “browse”, but we offer appointments for visitations and adoptions.  Please visit www.petharbor.com for a listing of our currently available and stray animals.

  • While we can sometimes accommodate walk-in transactions, please be aware that we may not be able to accommodate everyone, and previously made appointments will be given priority. The layout of our building makes it difficult to assist multiple people at one time while maintaining social distancing.

  • If your pet was brought to the shelter as a stray and you would like to claim them, please make an appointment and come prepared. Bring proof of ownership (vet records, photos, adoption paperwork, etc) as well as proof of current rabies vaccine if they have it.
