COVID-19 SHELTER UPDATE

Based on the executive order from Governor Hogan this morning, HSWC will be temporarily modifying some of our programs and services. Adoptions will close at 5 pm today. Don’t worry though! Essential staff will still be onsite making sure the animals are well cared for every single day.

In addition, our Field Services Officers will be operating under modified restrictions and will only respond to calls involving:

- Law Enforcement/Fire/EMS assistance

- Sick, injured or aggressive animals

- Animal cruelty

- Bite reports

- Animals without food, water or shelter

- Abandoned animals

- Stray animals that are contained during normal business hours

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time. Stay safe and hug your animals tightly!
