We’ve made temporary changes to safeguard our community and staff and to continue to help the Valley’s most vulnerable pets who depend on us.

Pets and COVID-19: At this time, and according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization, there is no evidence that companion animals including pets can spread COVID-19 and “there is no justification in taking measures against companion animals which may compromise their welfare.” Please consult those websites for the latest information. We are actively monitoring COVID-19 recommendations from the CDC, AVMA, state, and local organizations. Please continue to check back frequently for updates.
