Starting Tuesday, October 19th we will be reopening our shelter doors!
Due to the limited space at our shelters, we have a new vaccination policy for staff, volunteers and visitors to protect our community and reduce the spread of COVID-19. Masks are still mandatory.
We will never turn away a family or pet in an emergency.
So what does that mean for you?
If you are fully vaccinated (e.g. two doses + 14 days) with a COVID-19 vaccine, and not experiencing any symptoms, you can:
- Adopt a furry friend with your family (visits can include children under 12).
- Participate in drop-in dog walking and/or cat cuddling.
- Surrender a stray or rehome your pet. Please call ahead so we can ensure we have a cozy space available and ready to make the transition as smooth as possible.
- Drop off goodies and/or donations to help rescue, rehabilitate and rehome pets most in need.
To enter our shelter, please be prepared to show your official government proof of COVID-19 vaccination record. You can find this at the link here.
If you are not fully vaccinated (e.g. two doses + 14 days) with a COVID-19 vaccine, and not experiencing any symptoms, you can:
- Book an appointment to adopt a furry friend. We will be allocating 1 hour during the week and 1 hour on the weekend for this.
- Book an appointment to surrender a stray or rehome your pet. We will schedule you to visit when we are closed to the public.
- Make a kind donation by clicking here or calling 1-844-835-4798. You can drop off goodies in our donation bin just outside of our shelter doors.
As always, if it is an emergency or the pet is sick, injured, or pregnant, please knock on the door or ring the doorbell. A staff member will help you outside of the shelter.
Please be patient and kind to our shelter staff and volunteers. We continue to follow the direction and guidance of the Chief Medical Officer of Health for the Province of Nova Scotia. If you have any questions, call 1-844-835-4798.
We hope that this is a positive step forward while still meeting the needs of the communities we proudly serve. Thank you for your patience during these challenging times.
