Our hours have changed
Our hours have changed

Please note that WCHS hours of operation are changing, effective immediately. We will be open from 1-5 pm, 7 days a week except for major holidays, or during offsite adoption events. We understand not everyone can make it during our normal business hours so on Friday and Saturday, we will be open from 5-6 pm by appointment only. Please schedule an appointment prior to 3 pm to ensure staff availability those days.

We sincerely hope that this change in hours of operation does not create any hardship for our supporters. If you have any concerns or feedback, please feel free to contact us and share your concerns.

Please consider donating supplies to our needy babies.
