A message from the Executive Director

I certainly hope all of you are safe and well.  After much consideration and discussion with our Board President, I have come to the conclusion that our shelter will be closed to the public for the remainder of March.  We have a plan for the safety of our staff and all involved, in line with the statement recently made by Governor Inslee, in which he greatly restricted public gathering places. We feel this move is necessary to exercise safety for our staff, volunteers, and the general public.

We have also canceled all events and postponed volunteer gatherings, orientations and trainings.  We currently have a disinfecting protocol and use a hydrogen based cleaner that kills 99% of germs. We will use this time wisely to maintain disinfecting and cleaning procedures throughout the shelter. Staff will still be onsite to continue to care for the animals in our charge. Should we need to address something with the public , it will be by appointment.

Thank you, everyone, for your patience and understanding.  This, too, shall pass. Stay tuned for more details, including information regarding when we will open once more to the public. Most importantly, stay safe and healthy!

Executive Director
