Frequent Questions

How long do you keep animals at the shelter?

The animals being cared for in the shelter will stay until they are adopted. A typical stay at the WCHS can range from a few days to several months. Those who come to us as strays are kept 3-6 days before being made available for adoption. If an animal is in need of special care, it may be several weeks before it is ready for adoption.
