Re-Opening 9/22/2020

We love visitors, but we must limit our exposure to COVID-19 as we are a very small staff and cannot risk getting sick. Due to some large parties who are not following social distancing and sanitation protocols, we must make changes to our current procedures. 

1.     We still highly suggest that potential adopters submit an application prior to their arrival.

2.     ADOPTERS ONLY! If you are not seriously interested in adoption, please stay home!

3.     Until COVID-19 cases decline in our area, all parties must be limited to 2 people for walk-ins.

o   If your immediate household is larger than this, you can call ahead to schedule a time for us to accommodate your group.

4.     Groups larger than 5 people cannot be accommodated inside of our building, even with an appointment.

5.     No more than 3 parties will be allowed in the building at one time.

6.     DO NOT come to WCHS as a group with people outside of your household.

7.     Visitors must respect all posted signs about restricted animals and sanitizing procedures.

8.     Please practice social distancing and be mindful of the marked stations throughout the building.

9.     All visitors must sanitize their hands between each station and upon entering and exiting the building.

10.  The dog building will remain closed and locked. If you wish to meet a specific dog, you must submit an application prior to doing so.

11.  All people inside of the building during open hours will be required to wear a facial covering.

12.  Visitors will still be required to sign in and out at the office so that we are limiting the amount of people in the building.

13.  Adoption counselings will be performed outside if weather conditions permit to make space in the building for other visitors.

14.  Do NOT visit if you are sick, symptomatic, or have been exposed to COVID-19 in the past 14 days.

People who are violating these rules will be asked to leave and can be denied adoption or other services.


WCHS values the human/animal bond, provides stewardship for homeless pets and promotes compassionate treatment of all companion animals. With your help we can make a difference. Learn more and get involved.

*Numbers do not include exotics.

Fur Ball 2020

Fur Ball 2020

Fur Ball 2020 is only a month away!  

Please join us for the 13th Annual event with the theme of "The Good, The Bad, & The Snuggly".  

This year we took your feedback and made some changes.  People wanted more time to view our awesome selection of silent auction items so we are opening our doors at 4 PM instead of 5 PM.  The bar will be open at 4 so come early, check-in, grab a drink and peruse the auction rooms.  Appetizers and the remainder of the program will start at 5 PM and follow the normal schedule.  

We are still looking for event sponsors and donations for our auctions.  If you would like to participate please email and we will provide additional details.  We still have quite a few tickets left for this event but don't hesitate as we typically sell out early!  

For more details please visit our Fur Ball page HERE.  

We can't wait to see you there!  As always, dressing up is encouraged!
