Niagara County SPCA has continued to care for homeless and neglected animals during COVID-19 and now the animal shelter plans to officially open its doors back up to the public. Starting July 1, the SPCA will be welcoming visitors inside the building to view adoptable animals. However, some social distancing precautions will still be in place.
Ten people or less will be allowed in the building at a time and masks will be required. A greeter will welcome visitors to the SPCA. You will no longer need an appointment to view an adoptable animal in the kennels during business hours, but appointments will still be required if you wish to adopt a dog. Cat adoptions will not require an appointment.
“We look forward to welcoming the public back into our building and we thank everyone for their patience and cooperation during this difficult time. Although we had to move to curbside adoptions and appointment-only services temporarily, we still maintained a high adoption rate. On behalf of everyone at Niagara County SPCA and our shelter animals, we thank you for your support,” said Tim Brennan, executive director.
Shelter hours will remain noon to 5 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. The shelter will be closed Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday. For more information, please visit www.NiagaraSPCA.org.
