Shelter Update November 13, 2020
Unfortunately, due to a few infectious cats, we will be pausing intakes and adoption appointments at the shelter until further notice. This way we can get everyone treated to avoid an outbreak.
We will still accept and review adoption applications as usual, but will schedule the appointments for after re-opening.
For found animals or surrenders, we are asking everyone to continue to reach out, but we will not be able to take in any new cats until this period is over. Exceptions may be made (not guaranteed) based on availability of fosters.
Due to this situation, our usual funding will be decreased. Please consider donating via our website or FB to help us offset the cost of treating everyone and pausing intakes and adoptions. We are also in need of foster families during this time. Please reach out to learn more!
The building will remain closed to the public until further notice.
*We are still doing adoptions by appointment:
How the process will work:
•Once the application has been approved, we will call you to set up an adoption appointment.
•Please come with EXACT cash or check, otherwise we can accept payment in advance through PayPal.
•Please bring animal carriers or leash with you to your adoption appointment.
•All other instructions will be provided during our phone call.
Our COVID-19 Protocol for entrance into the building:
If you have a found animal, please Facebook message, email, or call first. We will get back to you as soon as we are able. We can do interactions curbside, outside the building if desired. We will give more specific instructions over the phone.
Our funds coming in are drastically reduced due to Covid-19. If you would like to donate at this time please do so through our donate button. We are set up through PayPal and would greatly appreciate any donations.
We have six part-time employees and some very dedicated volunteers that donate their time and money to the needs of our furry friends. Our goal is to provide for the welfare of animals and to promote public education for responsible pet ownership.
Pope County Humane Society was established in 1985 and incorporated in 1987. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, dedicated to caring for lost, abandoned, and stray animals. Seeing a need for an energetic nonprofit to support our community's animals, we formed our organization to provide solutions for animals in need. We've grown considerably since then, all thanks to the helping hands of this amazing community!
We focus on making the maximum positive effort for the animals coming into our care at PCHS. Our members and volunteers provide the momentum that helps us do meaningful work.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet the needs of each animal and improve conditions at the shelter. Every little bit helps us provide a safe place for the animals that come in to our care at PCHS.
