Due to the extensive concerns regarding COVID -19, the current pandemic Corona virus, we are temporarily changing our public hours.

Only volunteers and employees will be allowed in the shelter unless you have an appointment to meet a dog or cat scheduled ahead of time.

Dogs and cats can now be visited by appointment only. Please call 814-918-2032 to schedule.

An appointment must be made when a volunteer is available to show animals.

Visitation will be limited to no more than 5 people per group.

If someone wishes to drop off a donation, they should ring the door bell and leave it outside to be picked up.

If someone wishes to pick up food from the food bank, they should ring the door bell and say so over the intercom. Whoever is on the shift will bring the food outside for them.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. We will follow recommendations to decide when to go back to regular visiting.
