We are closely monitoring Dane County Public Health’s recommendations. In order to best protect the health of our volunteers and other Center visitors, we ask that visitors follow these guidelines:
- Visit only if you have plans to adopt an animal or have another pre-arranged appointment. Consider submitting your application and waiting for it to be approved before coming to look for your new furry friend.
- Wash your hands and use hand sanitizer before, during, and after your visit.
- Do not visit if, in the last 14 days, you have recently traveled to an area where coronavirus is spreading. Please check the CDC website for the most recent travel advisories.
- Do not visit if you’ve had direct contact with someone who has been confirmed to have COVID-19, feel sick (especially if you have a fever, cough, difficulty breathing, or any flu-like symptoms in the last 14 days), have a confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19, or are at high-risk for serious illness from COVID-19 (older people and people of all ages with severe underlying health conditions).
Additionally, we urge pet owners to have a plan in place for their furry family members. Consider having extra food, water, medications, supplies, crates, and carriers on hand and a trusted family, friend, neighbor, or pet sitter who can care for your pets if you are ill or hospitalized.
We will update this space and our Facebook page with any updates as they become available. Thank you for your adherence to these guidelines in order to keep everyone safe.
